AMMAN — State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani on Monday warned that the misuse of social media outlets could "destabilise and divide societies", the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. During a lecture at the Royal Jordanian National Defence College, Momani discussed the importance of raising awareness on the dangers of spreading rumours and false news, especially in times of crises.

He stressed the need for these outlets to be used for the common good rather than to spread division, extremism and hate speech.
