Gone are the days of relying on “Tortoise mail” to connect with people far away. Today everything and everyone is available at the touch of a button. Back in the early years of the internet, people felt that the internet would create a global village, transcending the boundaries of time and space. But on the other side today Internet is causing a multitude of social and psychological problems as it is affecting their social relations. Most of the people do not know each other, and even more likely that neighbors do not know a person’s friends or relatives.
