Yes, social media has helped in making our world smaller. We have learnt how to use social media but somewhere we have forgotten to be social. You can easily find a situation that you are sitting in a room with your parents and siblings, but you all are busy with your gadgets, posting your photo or chatting with a random person. No one knows the feelings of the other person. Social media was created to bring us closer, to make the world smaller but at the same time, we have learnt not to be social. A gap has been created between all of us. Our world has been a lot bigger by this social media.
When there were no social media then you used to play with your siblings at your home, with your neighbors. You used to discuss your problems with your close ones. But now everyone is busy on the online social media, where most of the time, fake feelings are shown as by chatting no one can know how are you feeling? You can very easily pretend who you are not.
