13. April 2019 at 09:00
“Facebook lets people connected meet new friends, yet some argue people spend so much time on social media that they lose contact with real life and may even become addicted.”

In the shining of 21st century, we have introduced ourselves to social media platforms like, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Whats-app, Snap chat, tweeter, and many more. These platforms have created to connect, communicate people, and to collect information all around world and what not. Social media helps to expand the contacts with new brains, but it also creates isolation with actual world. Following are the facts that create isolation.

Firstly, when we were child, we used to play many physical games and activities (like Cricket, Football, Tennis, LUDO, Chess, etc.) in groups that improves our relationship with the authentic world. But Now-a-days, our new generation is interested to play these games on social media that cut the connection with our neighbors.

Secondly, isolation, with the real world, also worsen our physical and mental health. Experts proves that socialization helps better our immune system, physical health, and lightens your mood and feeling of depression may decrease. It may lower the risk of dementia. But, have you seen the today’s generation’s group gathering in hotels and restaurants? They are surfing through social media on their iPhone, instead of interacting with each other.

Finally, social isolation cause people to have a higher risk of SCHIZOPHRENIA, is a serious mental illness characterized by illogical thoughts, bizarre behavior and speech, and delusions and hallucinations, such as hearing voices.

In the last, the rise of social media has meant an increase of social introverts across the globe. The consistently use and dependence of social media leads these social recluses unable to speak and communicate outside the virtual interaction, and this social separation can harm our physical and mental health.
