Is social media ruling your life?

As the name suggest “facebook” is the medium to realise oneself and connect with the world within you and outside. Facebook has not only given an opportunity to reach friends and relatives whom it could not have been possible to find easily but has also helped us to tap into old memories and rejoice. It also helps enhance and promote business and tourism.

Now talking about being dependent on it which is the main problem these days, I think facebook should be limited to connect with friends and one must not get addicted or obsessed by looking for a solution for loneliness on social media. In fact if we start getting addicted, we are sure to be lonely one day. So facebook should be used but not 24/7 and make a habit of using it for short intervals only.
