Being in digital marketing I use Facebook extensively and interact with many Facebook users frequently. I am not saying social media users but restricting myself to Facebook users only as the amount of time users spend on Facebook is more than any other site they spend on. I was wondering if increased use of Facebook is taking toll on personal and professional life. Is Facebook having adverse effect on relationships? Is Facebook connecting us with each other or it is more disconnecting people from each other? To find this I decided to speak with Facebook users.
After having words with many Facebook users in person I can say that using excessive Facebook and having a disconnect with real life and real people can land you any of below mentioned issues causing a disharmony in life.
- Women’s issues
- Parenting issues
- Body image issues
- Sexual Abuse/assault (through chats, messages etc. etc.)
- Issues with food and eating habit
- Grief and loss
- Relationship difficulties
- Low Self esteem
- High Self esteem
- Health-Related issues
- Inferiority complex
- High Ego Problem etc. etc.
- Work issues
What is your experience with usage of Facebook and it’s impact on life? Do you interact with many Facebook users? What are your observations?
