Profanity comprises of all the words that are socially offensive. Sometimes referred to as swear words, it is anything that is rude, offensive or strongly impolite. Profanity may also refer to words that are disrespectful and defame someone or something.
Profanity on social media is the same as in real life except that on social media you mostly type in what you feel. It is one of the most recurring activities on social media even after continuous resentment. This repeated profanity on social media is primarily because the new generation is a product of ‘freedom of speech’. With punk poets like Henry Rollins and influential musicians like Eminem, swearing is no longer considered to be bad in all spheres of life. However, it should not be so.
We believe that there is a correct place for everything. Hence, profanity on social media which is a public space is neither logical nor acceptable as people from different cultures, countries, and languages are there sharing their thoughts and their lives. Therefore, as a social media site owner, it is extremely difficult to maintain a profanity-free community site with such a diverse audience. However, there is an easier way to do this as a BuddyPress based social community owner.
