Facbook is the 2nd most visited site in the world ( 1st is Google)
Facebook founder and world’s youngest billionaire ‘Mark Zukerbarg’ never would have thought that the site will gain so much popularity in such a short period of time. In fact if you are not on FB, People would look at you and say, “Oh you are not an FB!!???… How do you live without FB!!…and all that.
Today FB has more than 1 billion Registered users which means every 7th person on earth have registered on FB. And in the all probability you are also one of them. Now we need to think about spending time in using facebook.
You could be a Normal user, over user, or addicted.
Let’s say about normal user: if you spend time less than one hour, you come under this category. And if you spend time more than one hour that means you are over user. And yes, it doesn’t mean that you are only physically sitting in front of system/smart phone. It also includes all time even thinking about FB (thinking about how many people would have liked/commented on my status). Now come to the part of addicted. Few months back I was part of Addicted. You might be part of it if you are following all points….
1. If your mind is always thinking how many people would like my status and how many comments comes on my status.
2. If you are refreshing screen again and again and waiting always for something
3. If net disconnected and you started using FB on smart phone.
4. You are using FB in toilet.
5. Before going to sleep you update GOOD NIGHT.
6. First thing you do in the morning is to see reaction on GOOD NIGHT status.
Now I am going to talk about my usage of FB. I have already written few months back I was addicted but now I use less than 20 minutes including thinking about FB (you can say under user). In my opinion Ideally it should not be used more than 30 minutes if you are using more than that then you are wasting your time. But apart from purposefully, like promoting your business, marketing complain, social cause, or you are doing some meaningful work. In these case giving your time is worth full
Most of the people use FB without meaningful work
In my opinion
Those people who don’t have ‘meaningful goal ‘…The wonders
Those people who are more interested in others life …..The peepers
Why FB is Harmful for over users…here are few reasons:
1. Your happiness control is in others hand …..
How? Eg… When you upload pics or when you bought something and update ….you start thinking …how many people Like, How many people comment, if you did not get like and comment as per your expectation ….then you will start thinking some negative things like, why people not like my photo?, I am not looking good?, and I am not good in friends circle. You start underestimating yourself because when you were upload pics that time you were happy…Now your happiness turns into frustration .
2. You look others Blessings as self shortcoming
Generally people share good things on FB. Like new car, new home, and so on
we also do same thing but do you know the reality behind the new car or New home? People share about New car but they don’t share the monthly EMI that comes with it( car ke sath aane wali EMI nhi share karte). Friends share their swanky office but they do not share Tension behind the office( log uske sath milne bali tension nhi share karte), when it happen you start comparing yourself, ultimately you start feeling low.
3. Real friends and relationship suffer
Most of people proudly say ‘you know! I have 1000 friends on FB….but I am sure if these friends will pass in front of your eyes you will identify only half of the people. But anyway it’s not a bad thing but if you give time to these unknown friends..Then you start compromising with family, real friends, relatives. But frankly speaking FB is like a ‘Crowd’ and (bheedh ka koi chahera nhi hota hai).
4. Socially active but in reality just opposite
So many people think I am an active user of FB. They say hi and bye to their friends. But in reality when your office and college friends you see face to face even you do not react. It’s like online presence with no importance to physical presence.
5. You spend energetic day in lazy entertainment
If you look the demography most of FB users are teens and twenties people. Teen age or for those in their twenties, it is the most important time of their life or you can say this age is meant to shape your life. When you put this young energy you can do anything whatever you want in life. But some people invest in wrong place.
So finally I would like to say FB is like a shopping mall where you can get lots of noise. So when you spend less time you can enjoy but if you make home there, then you listen others noise.
