From a picture with friends to the news of getting married, the first day at a job, the arrival of a new born in the family and even one’s mood swings and the status of a relationship, everything has to be “posted on the timeline”. The job isn’t done even after things are posted. The real purpose is only served when one sees the number of likes and shares received for a particular post and revels in his/her popularity on social media. Facebook has evolved into an integral part of social media.
Things have changed to such an extent that people have now begun to celebrate even birthdays, not to spend time with the family or for the general feeling of joy it gives, but to upload pictures on Facebook and count the likes for the picture. The Facebook storm has undoubtedly taken over the world.
However, we all neglect the fact that despite being a social media platform, the extent to which Facebook can become transparent is uncontrollable. This brings up the problem of hacking, which in the simplest terms means trespassing into others’ accounts without his/her knowledge. This is a potential threat that can lead to many serious problems.
