This panel will discuss this issue from various perspectives that would lead to the solution of similar problems from different fields. However, the same benchmark, an inequality of social reality essentially developed as an overall theme to this panel discussion. Inequality in social reality the next drive to a clash of views is not only different but some of them contrary to the norms of society and thinking and their social reality before the advent of social networking site until further growth in Malaysia’s development.
