Social Networking has gained much popularity in the recent years because of the opportunities they provide to connect to each other in an easy and timely manner and to exchange various thoughts and. Orkut, Facebook, Myspace, Hi5, Linkedin, Twitter, Friendster, Ibibo, Ning are the popular ones while Facebook is the most favorite Social Networking Website. Facebooking on Internet has become order of the day, not only for youngsters but for all age groups. Facebook sometimes acts as “Power to the people”. While these Social Networks are designed to make people more social, isn’t it funny how Social Networking is making people especially the youngsters more anti-social? Youngsters and teenagers lack the ability to communicate or concentrate away from their
Facebook screens. Their real social network with their family and friends suffers a great deal. They don’t get time to attend people as they prefer to attend `Friend Requests' on the site.
Home or outside, the Facebook has addicted the brains of young and consume all their time. Adults for adults, children are more vulnerable. It is becoming more and more evident that social networking over the web is the new opium for today's youngsters.
Though Social Networking sites have brought the world a little closer but they are indirectly discouraging teenagers from having a healthy diet, hence posing a great risk of eating disorders as well.
