US President Barack Obama says that social media allows people to see how messy the world is.


Speaking at a Democratic Party fund-raiser, the president tried to reassure people that the world is a lot safer than it was 20 years ago and it is simply digital expansionism that has made people to think otherwise, CNET reports

Obama said the world has always been messy, but people have started noticing only now because of social media and their capacity to see in intimate detail the hardships that people are going through.

He also spoke about how people across the world were taking to Twitter to express their anger over the sufferings of people on the other side of the world.

Obama said that one's anxieties tend to be associated with his or her own personal sense of present and future.

He added that social media exists as a vehicle for one's natural, desperate narcissism, the report said.
