The study will deal with the comparative evaluation of representation of Bodo movement in different media and how does the representation of the agenda on separate state vary across ranges of other media and SNS, mainly in this paper Facebook is highlighted as a social networking site. We cannot avoid the implication of SNS in influencing mass for an action. At the same time the binary of inclusive and exclusive nature of SNS cannot be undermined. The study will be significant to analyse the role of media in influencing the agenda of separate Bodo state and the changing dynamics of Bodo movement in connection of the incorporation of new media platform for agenda making.
