In Islamic teachings gossip is a forbidden act as it causes unethical damages to the society. But some psychological studies show that Gossiping can have a positive impact on society by helping encourage co-operation and reform bullies. Dr. Matthew Feinberg, a researcher at Stanford University in the United State who co-wrote the study, said: “Groups that allow their members to gossip sustain co-operation and deter selfishness better than those that don’t.”
“And groups do even better if they can gossip and ostracize untrustworthy members.”
