Be on line with what’s go­ing around you and not just on­line.

We make use of the so­cial net­work­ing sites on a daily ba­sis. It brings to us new ideas and news from all across the globe. But it is also a fact that so­cial me­dia can never be trusted with what­ever you read. We hate to ad­mit that we too make use of the so­cial net­work­ing sites more than we should but then at least we know (or we feel so) that we need to be more cau­tious than ever! Tech­nol­ogy has taken over hu­mans in a way that is shock­ing and mind-bog­gling. The in­ter­net then came into play and took over peo­ple’s lives in un­imag­in­able ways. What is re­ally freaky is how the young don’t know the dif­fer­ence be­tween the real and vir­tual, usu­ally think­ing that they mean the same. The ero­sion of the real world is some­thing that must re­ally be the con­cern of our times.
