Nandagopal Rajan and Shruti Dhapola, who handle Indian Express Technology, host this new weekly podcast which goes beyond the trends so you can stay ahead of the curve. Our Own Devices discusses quirky gadgets, dissects trends and reflects on the world of tech in India.
Over the month, host Shruti Dhapola has noticed that the Instagram stories she’s viewing have transformed from animal and food pictures to CAA protest organisation. Whatsapp groups, however, tell a very different story. On this episode, Nandagopal Rajan and Shruti discuss how different social media enables different sorts of conversations. Do these platforms shape the worldview of their users and create an echo chamber? Can YouTube be considered a messaging platform? How does the language gap get reinforced? And are we going to see the beginnings of more user driven, decentralized social media like Mastodon? Tune in to find out.
