A person fractured his leg in a bike accident. While in hospital he take his selfie with big leg and post in F.B. He got hundred more likes and comments in F.B. virtually . But none of his F.B friends speak to him directly. Only one friend from abroad see it and telephoned to him. This is the real situation of social media addiction. I read in one of the local language daily that one of the young man make a suicide note in F.B late in night and his friends see his dead body in the morning. We are always think about our profit, love, loss and damage. If we think that our life is a marathon run to the death and there is only little time here we can love others and find love every where. Picture from google.

It is disturbing @shshiju people no longer want to make the effort to phone or visit a friend. They think a like button is all that counts. It is disturbing.

Exactly Catherine things move to virtual only. And relations also.

We are more alone now that we have all those social sites, than we were in the past. At least in the past we met our friends and not virtually, but in person.

An addiction to social media never ends well, it seems.

I don't blame social media. But we have relations other than virtual.

I was hearing that just being on social media causes a lot of stress and anxiety

The real life is more important. Maintaining relationships with our friends/families is very important. Social interaction and meeting others have many benefits. People who get addicted to the virtual world may have problem to cope with people in their real life

Exactly relationship and friendship is like bonding of love. It's like a give and take policy. If we are rejecting to give any love or visit to others there is no right to take their love and respect.

Would more of his friends called him or come to see him if there were no social media? While you might look at it as a big "shortage" (hundreds responding virtually, and only one responding 'actually'); I'd rather see it as a "win" or a "profit" (as NONE of those hundreds of virtual responders would have responded at all without the social-media!)

I don't mean that if more of his friends will if he had some communication and love with them . In the past there were time for everybody at least visit them.

We should control ourselves not to get addicted to any social media sites.

It is important to have real contact with people all the time not just on social media.
