Lulled into the deep slumber, she didn’t pay a heed to the alarm piece. It kept ringing, but in vain. It was an everyday affair, but today she woke up by herself, she seemed to be awake past night, turning and tossing, almost sleep deprived, but surprisingly before the alarm could wake her up She got up, quickly grasped her cell phone, clicked on an icon and was awestruck for a while….. Taking a deep breath! While reading every line gestures on her visage kept changing. Different expressions. Stunned! At times could not believe her eyes, engaging herself in the dramatic monologue- really? Is it? How come? Aww! Crazy...
Last night she had changed her Facebook profile picture and this was the reason she couldn’t sleep, wow! 72 likes and 36 comments. She almost jumped out of the bed in excitement. Being impressed with the people who had followed her picture and commented on it. They were the closest of all of that very day. Now let me introduce you with this very special ‘She’. .’She’’ is none other than you Dear Reader! Well! Ladies, it's not only us, 'The Facebook Divas', but we have 'Facebook Greek gods' too in our category. Very much like Adams and Eves in this real world and our so called Cupid. ‘Stalkers’ this face book saga survives upon. Reminds me of a song “College ki saheliyon se catch-up kar liya
Arey college ki saheliyon se catch-up kar liya
Jinko mill na paayi unko WhatsApp kar diya "
In this new era of social media what else can be expected?
(Let’s name “she” as Shenel (influenced by big brand channel)
Next shenel visited every wall to like the post to her followers, following the theory of giving and take. The more she liked, the more followers she got in return. Now this routine work had taken the shape of a silent deal. A secret silent deal!
We all are victimised one or the other way. The magic of social media is that we buy happiness at the cost of unhealthy competition and running in the rate race. In most instances, we invite people to intrude our privacy and the outcomes are worst which gives birth to Jealousy, ostentation, wardrobe sneak peek. Few indulge into stalking business, and few into a fake relationship!
We end up making 1000 of followers portraying ourselves as big shots/ celebrities, but during our tiring times, we realise there are only handful of people to stand by us.
Although we all are familiar with the repercussions still we engross ourselves in the artificial world of likes and dislikes .We participate, and suffer .It has actually caused relationship disengagement. During early times people used to visit each other, but now they celebrate reunion catching up on these sites and applications. Refrain yourself of getting addicted. Meet people, cherish the moments, and celebrate each day of life. Read well, do well and encourage humanity and love!
