We humans are social animals . We are build in such a way that we can feel what other is feeling and the feature is known as empathy . From earlier periods humans started communicating in ancient period they used sign language then they made sounds and kept on upgrading .

Being social is serving your connectivity with others but the Apps which are called as 'social apps' are they really making us social ?

The question torns apart the social nature of human .

We feel lack of connection even though we are connected with 1000 of people .

The list goes on .....


You may surf it on web , I'm not here to make count on that only instead I'm here to leave a impact to overcome through it .
