I always thought advances in technology are both a boon and bane , more of the second because of the disappearing personal touch .The number of followers one has is a test to the person’s popularity and the number invariably increases with more and more pictures, mostly personal posted on their page .Women find it a blessing as it provides an opportunity for them to model clothes of their choice and gloat in the compliments they receive from their followers. Unfortunately men have no such chance because of the limited sartorial choices they have. However, they use FB to express their love on the occasion of their spouse’s birthday and on their wedding anniversary, turning something that is personal into universal !
But now convinced about the boon part of it , I found geographical distances disappearing where I am able to watch birthday celebration of my near and dear living in far away countries from my own home. Probably all that I miss is a bite of the yummy cake cut by the birthday girl/boy on the occasion.
