Internet addiction

Thursday, 12 September 2019

There are about 30 million active internet users in Bangladesh and we find many of them are greatly addicted to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other social media networking sites. Researchers call a reckless desire to spend an inappropriate amount of time on the net as "internet addiction". Many people, whenever they wake up, check their Facebook updates. Even children are seen watching cartoon and songs on YouTube. By doing so, we are actually missing much of fun and activities of life in real time. Now, we need to renew our resolution to socialise and read books in order to overcome the net addiction. Instead of widening our horizon, the virtual world is killing our soil.
