The internet has changed the face of the world. It has changed the way we do things, the way we meet people, keep in touch and make friends. The internet has changed a lot of things in our life. With what began with the simple luxury for doing things easily the internet has now become an inseparable part of our lives, whatever we do the internet has a role to play in it. The internet serves as an open source of collecting and posting information. This open source is free for all. The internet is also an open source of putting across one’s views independently across a large scale of people without the fear of being recognized or trashed publicly. With the increase in the usage of the internet, the popularity of the social networks has also increased. The social networks are the sites where people meet each other virtually. These social networks are the platform where old friends catch-up with each other even of being very full of activity and staying far off places. This is also a place where people make new friends and keep in touch with them. The social networks are both a curse and a boon. The internet has made the human touch amongst each other less but at the same time the social networks have helped in a way by providing at least a virtual place to keep in touch with friends. It is also an open source where people can make new friends, meet new people from all over the world and not from a specific area or physical region. The internet is a place where the whole thing is possible. It is world of one’s own. The social networks through the internet are both advantageous as well as disadvantageous at the same time.
