Communication in social nets should not deprive a person
of common sense and mislead him, Patriarch Kirill of
Moscow and All Russia said.

“You should be careful going along this field, so
that not to lose your head, not to create illusions: how
easy, free, nice and simple everything is, I told him, he
responded… Then vanity and overconfidence start working,
especially when some “cool” expressions collect
likes. People like it, it means I become popular and my
way of thinking and style of expressing is correct,”
the patriarch said on Tuesday speaking to the participants
in The Faith and the Word international festival
in Moscow.

However, according to the patriarch, the way of thinking
and style of expressing it may be absolutely incorrect,
but “a person, inspired by this virtual support,
loses benchmarks in life.”

The patriarch urges those who work in virtual field not to
spend inner potential on “the noise,” on empty
words.

“Information field is an explosive field. On one
hand, there is freedom and a person can easily step into
this field, but on the other hand, a mined field also
looks nice, if a person does not know what is hidden in
it. You can easily blow up on this mined field, you need
mine detectors, you need to have the feel,” he
stressed.
