internet and social networking has helped people a lot to save their time......a peroson need not to search books for the information he wants....he easily gets it on internet...social networking helps us to stay connected with people we dont even know............

Often times, the Internet causes distractions. One may log on to read important news, but get distracted and click on the headlines of mindless celebrity gossip instead. This does not save time -- it makes a person waste time doing something unproductive.

Also, while searching for the information a person wants, s/he may have to look hard to find it among the "noise" of useless or unauthentic information. The Internet also gives rise to plagiarism in important projects. Thus, the Internet, with its overload of information, is not any better than books. Books may be more difficult to find and look up, but may give a better reward.

Social networking is not good enough in today's busy times to keep in touch with loved ones. It also replaces a personal, emotional connect with a more digital one. Staying connected with "people we don't even know" leads to the dangers of pedophiles, conmen and rapists luring the innocent and the naive.
