    In this fast paced world, communicating with other people in social networking sites have reduced personal interactions amongst the human beings in a community. In spite of the fact that it possess many advantages, I believe, the disadvantages weigh more on the scale and this essay will discuss it.

    On one hand, advancements in technology has proven to be a boon for us. With the development of these networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, etc., the geographical barriers are broken, thereby bringing people closer. Moreover, interaction amongst peers has become easier nowadays. A survey, conducted by Yale University, analyzed that younger generations are more active on social messaging applications like WhatsApp and Snapchat and have friends and followers from various parts of the world. Because of the calling feature of these apps, the usage of landline and cellular phone calls have drastically reduced, making them talk on the go without creating a hole in the pocket.

    On the other hand, increased dependency on these applications for communication has made talking discretional. These days, people can respond to the messages at their convenience and can also block someone whenever they want. Furthermore, too much reliability on social websites for communication diminishes the feeling and the urge of going out to have physical interaction with the society, therefore, reducing the traditional face to face interaction to digital interaction. As a consequence, people lack empathy and the emotional connect. For instance, nowadays, young couple meet on Tinder and break up on WhatsApp.

    To summarize, we know that social media’s contribution to bring people from various geographical regions is commendable. However, the demerits that are associated, such as optional talking and lack of intimacy is a great cause of concern and this can transform the society which will not be for good.
