Q.3 What are the reasons for seeking online anonymity by a person? What are the issues with such anonymity? (10 Marks)

Mentor’s comment-
  • https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/the-many-problems-of-online-anonymity/article38293402.ece
  • In the intro, define anonymity.
  • In the body mention the reasons for choosing anonymity such as speaking truth against vindictive governments, participation in online conversation without being judged, not let the views be tagged to the real person being spoken about, in the offline world etc.
  • In issues mention the issue of misinformation and disinformation,  anonymity, either by choice or enforced by platforms, gives the power to a person to evade judgment by public opinion, another issue could be the encouragement by some platforms to go anonymous.
  • Conclude by mentioning that the proliferation of both pseudonymous social media handles and platforms that encourage pseudonymous profiles may amplify already existing issues around online disinformation and fake news.

It looks like a copy paste of the real editorial. You should try to use your own words.
