    Podcasts and WhatsApp statuses bring Kallot Yisroel closer and fell like family from across the globe. They promote great stories, important ideas, and incredible footage of our leaders. Is it getting out of hand? Could it be dangerous?

    I disagree cause it actually makes it instead more of a hangout which is dangerous.

    Shimon Nodel

    It is far more destructive than constructive


    How do WhatsApp status do anything?


    WhatsApp doesn’t have the same dangers that other social media does. There’s no algorithm pushing unwanted fantasy and entertainment on you. However, there are major problems with it that I fear in general the bad outweighs the good. So many “in-groups” that specifically exclude people. Lashon Hora and fake news gets around much faster. I’ve personally experienced multiple issues directly related to WhatsApp.

    I can’t speak for podcasts, I don’t really listen to them all that much. However, I think they are wonderful. Just like Rav Avidgor Miller’s talmidim and Rav Frand (L’havdil) pioneered taped shiurim so that people can listen to Torah anytime and anywhere, which then exploded in popularity so that you can find tons of shiurim, speeches, and insights sold in cassete tapes in every kosher pizza shop and shtieble. Podcasts are the same thing in a different form.
