Social media may have grown massively blurring lines between print and broadcasting but regulations have not been able to keep pace with technological developments, Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said on Tuesday.
Speaking at a function organised by Amity University in Noida, he said the growth of social media has reshaped the communication paradigm in the past five years.
With this phenomenon, India, today, has seven crore broadcasters who are using Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, he said.
The minister said the lines of technology between usage of a phone instrument to making calls and radio for entertainment are completely blurring.
