Description:
We are now living in a virtual world, a world where we carry a whole library of facts, information and resources in our pockets and in our handbags...in the form of a smartphone. We are as accessible and contactable as we want to be. We have the answer to most questions within a few seconds at our fi ngertips. For some this can be seen as a blessing, for others they see it as a curse. Some hail the advent of smartphone’s and social media networks as groundbreaking 21st century technology which has changed the face of day-today life as we know it. Others see this social media revolution as marking the decline of face-to-face conversation, that we are losing our ability to socialise away from our phones and for many can present even greater challenges in the form of an addiction and withdrawal from society. Social media can be defi ned as the interaction among people in which they create, share, exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks
