Stop spreading propaganda
There types of updates which floats around social media has vested interest of people behind it. Stop spreading such content without any background verification. As far as possible try to avoid sharing negative content.
Make full use of your social media profile, you can use motivational or happiness quotes to design your profile, give something positive, to people who visit your profile. if you do not like putting on quotes, keep positive content on your profile subtle.
