Girl Texting on Mobile

Social Media and the social networking are getting giant day by day. Social media today is used by people across the world for the better communication. Often, this type of communication might be doing more harm than the benefits for which we using it. This has changed the way people interact and communicate with each others in the real life as well as in virtual one.


It is on the verge of replacing the real world with the virtual world not only it is replacing but also the social networking is affecting the people’s life in many ways. Some of the common and negative effects of the social media and networking are-

  1. People getting isolated within the four walls.
  2. 2 out of 10 getting bullied.
  3. It is affecting the lifestyle and relationships.

These days people are making and discussing about their relations openly on all over the internet, be it Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and at numerous forums. They don’t even care about the consequences. This has been a trend of making relationship on the social networking websites like Facebook which is now serving more of a matrimonial website than a social networking. In the real world the same people hesitate while establishing communication with people whom they know, but in case of the virtual world the same people are having great talks with the people whom they don’t even know each other properly.

This might be shocking for most of the parents and people who are far away from the virtual world that these people decide to meet each others within a few hours of talks. They don’t even try to find about the background of the person they talked nor they looked forward in the past life, rather they trust on them like anything in the world. In past few years, it there are a lot of cases has been reported of misuse of these social networking sites. People out there are smart enough to identify the fake accounts, but “a chain is called a con” because they are conning others with an ease.

People use social engineering techniques for making friends, then the best-friends and then the mates for life, but is this the correct way, of using social networking. It all results in weaker relationships, some people use these tools for cheating on their partners, so the pillar of trust between relation of two individuals is weak enough, that it is now a day breaking with a single strike of Whatsapp’s last seen 😉 .

This simply means that relations are going weaker and the numbers of cheaters are growing faster than anything. Even with social media websites and applications, the so called “apps” are affecting the space required by a single person. If a couple is totally loyal in a relationship and both partners are equally possessive and obsessive for each other they are not willing or are able to give enough space for their partner’s lifestyle.

They completely depend on each other for their purposes which is not a very good thing for a, long lasting relationship, And it will also result in break up, these small things have a very big impact on a person’s life, even some of them are not able to trust anyone in the whole world or might even lose their confidence for life. This type of use of social networking should be stopped, especially in the case of relationships.
