Facebook, It is All About Trolling

By Asmit Ojha

Facebook, being one of the greatest and most successful innovations of the Internet technology, has many addicts. According to the recent data, Facebook has over 1.35 billion active users all over the world. Needless to say, a lot of facilities are available in Facebook, like chatting, forming groups, status updates, photo sharing and many more. But, amongst all, what I find most amusing are the trolls.

People who use Facebook on a daily basis are used to trolls. We see hundreds of trolls whilst scrolling our page, some of them are readily ignored while some of them are worth sharing with our friends. The most common types are:

1. Football Trolls:

I believe, every football fan in this world just loves these. Be it Brazil getting thrashed by Germany 7-1, Manchester United starting the season terribly or Lionel Messi missing some penalties, Internet just goes mad about it. Opponents are prepared if your team gets a bad result. You can easily find hundreds of Facebook pages running just for the sake of Football trolls.

Last Saturday, it was 'AAMA KO MUKH HERNE DIN' in Nepal. Almost all Facebook users posted their mother's photo saying 'I lOVE YOU','BEST MOM'...etc. And, just imagine, there was a bunch of other people ready to post trolls regarding mothers not using Facebook, children being 'Facebooky' and what not. Whenever any festival approaches, we are used to getting and sharing such trolls. They just reinvigorate the mood.

Probably, these are the kinds of trolls everybody loves the most. Whenever the government makes some big decisions or a leader gives some absurd public speech, he can expect Internet flooding against him for next few days. People or rather trolls, love posting offensive comments and making fun of the leader. Whenever 'Prachanda', 'Baburam' or even any leaders of the world say something in public, they can expect a good blow from the internet.

It is a no hidden fact, every student in the world loves trolling their teachers. And, through many secret groups and confessions pages, this has taken a new height. Teachers get trolled mercilessly for their on and off-class behavior and others simply join the force.

Then, there are 'Engineering Trolls' or 'MBBS trolls'. People often make fun of them for not having beautiful girls at school, the difficult syllabus of the university or the long time duration of the course. If properly examined, these trolls can prove to be totally relative to real life.

There are many Facebook pages dedicated to troll the society, our daily ignorant practices. We often see trolls regarding panipuru/chatpate, girlfriends, bargaining, biking, strikes/protest, spending of money and hundreds of other activities. These bring a smile in everybody's face.

Last, but not least, these trolls are famous in some secret groups and pages. Very famous among boys and limited close-knit friends, these are not sharable in the public profile. Yet, these trolls are famous among ever other group of colleagues.
