Nobody can gainsay this fact that after the advent of science and technology our lives have become so much easier. These inventions have revolutionized the world and have captured the minds of people. Now the communication is no more a problem, as the whole world has become a global village.
Social websites like orkut, twitter and the most common used site among us “facebook” has opened the doors of opportunities for people and provided a platform to show ones skills. All of these websites were surely created to spread awareness one-way or the other.
Face book, is the wonder that was the idea of American students. Not only face book but also orkut and twitter have so many users that we can’t even imagine. However, I would like to discuss Face book right away because in my view it is the most used social website and many of us surely likes to listen about its momentous features. The standout features of face book is that its registration is free of cost and you do not need to pay a single penny for the services rendered by face book, there fore, it says “ It is free and will always be.”
Facebook has provided many opportunities for individuals and community too. One can express his ideas, feelings and emotions with others. It is also a source of entertainment also by making new friends and enlarging social circle, being a part of certain groups, playing games and exchanging messages. We can comment on several posts, upload our status, display pictures and videos or publishing our profiles.
By using this platform we can have chat with our cousins, intimate friends and even with those whom we have casual acquaintance. We can make pen palls and in this way we can get to know about different cultures and traditions. It is a source of hedonism, as there are many quizzes through which we can get to know about our personality and amazing facts about our zodiac signs. It can also be used for promoting education and it is the best way of spreading awareness, as the most hidden news is first published on face book making it easier for other people to get to know about it.
All of the social websites and even Facebook has achieved its milestone by bringing millions of people together from different walks of life. It has made us extrovert rather than introvert. It is rightly being said that man is a social animal and for his survival he is banking on others through these social websites where social contacts are being made. We can even find our old friends with help of friend finder in very short span of time. These social websites have gained so much popularity that millions of people login on these sites instead of wasting their time in pub, they can make their time valuable and get relaxed.
By considering all the above-mentioned factors, these social websites have paved the way to promote brotherhood, friendship and pro-found knowledge of everything rather than creating chaos and has narrowed the gap that created a rift among us.
