Gone are the days when there were few sources of information, and we had to wait for long hours to get a piece of news. With social networking sites like Twitter, getting the news of the world has become a task of a second because, in every few seconds, the media houses like CNN, BBC, Fox News, etc. are updating the information. Not only the global news but we can acquire the information about our favorite personalities like author, movie stars, television stars, and players.

Today photography has expanded its horizon as we don’t have to rely only upon cameras. Mobile phones have come up with great picture resolution that has totally re-defined the idea of photography. To complement this, there are social medias like Instagram which is a very effective medium to share our photos with friends and family. Additionally, selfies have become the latest trend. It has become viral among people to take their photos with a duck face. But with selfies becoming the fashion now, people are also taking pictures in sensitive times like natural disaster. This shows that people are losing their judgments and are more interested in themselves than other even during the times when it calls for help and sympathy.

3) Changing Pattern In Education:

These days, we don’t have to only depend on the class notes from teachers as the internet is full of educational information. Education has been simplified with the coming of social media like Youtube which contains helpful educational videos. So the trend of how we used to learn only through books and teachers have changed now. However there is also a downfall to look upon, and that is when students get hooked upon in various social medias doing texting, sharing photos; they are proving to be a major cause of distraction from the study.
