At this point, we can all agree that social media isn't all fun and games. While it has become an integral part of our lives, one of the key challenges that comes with platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is trolling and bullying. The need of the hour lies in handling the menace before it's too late and one of our favourite millennial Bollywood actors, Ananya Panday, is leading the charge on this.
The 20-year-old launched a 'Swachh Social Media' campaign under her digital social responsibility initiative 'So Positive' on Gandhi Jayanti by sharing a special video on Instagram.
Ananya captioned the video, "We all need to be the change that we want to see around us 🙏🏻 Today, I have pledged that I won’t use abusive language on social media with the intent to hurt someone 😇 If you also feel that we need our social environment to be cleaner and more positive, please take this step for a #SwachhSocialMedia ❤️ #SoPositive @sopositivedsr"

Three months ago, Ananya had launched her Digital Social Responsibility initiative 'So Positive (SO+)'. She took to Instagram and posted, "A part of growing up is taking responsibility & as a woke Millennial I, Ananya Panday introduce y’all to my Digital Social Responsibility initiative 'So+' ❤️ @sopositivedsr".
