   Have you ever felt that you are addicted to social networking sites like orkut ,facebook ? Have you ever  felt bad about being unable to chat with your virtual friends daily ? Then its time to look whether you are addicted to your virtual world and whether  you are a social being in your real world  as you are in the virtual world.

   I have seen many guys who yell at their friends ," Hey I have 600 facebook fans " .......and some proud guys just count out their tweets and shout out that they have 10000 tweets and 500 followers ...oh ya....
I wonder ...how many fans or friends they have in the real World ? When many guys don't even have a single girl friend in the real world ...they flirt with a dozen girl friends at the same time in social networking sites like orkut or Facebook.

Cool Orkut

  Even though I came to orkut to make friends ,within few weeks I felt little annoying  that many virtual friends want me to share my personal life with them ,when i have never once in my lifetime have met that guy/girl.
Later I even thought of deleting my orkut account ...but changed my stand when I felt that scraping and orkuting is the easiest ways ...I could use to be in touch with my old schoolmates and friends...spread across the globe.

My 100th Tweet

  Thanks to Shashi Tharoor and Feroz Khan (No he is not a film star - just my school mate ) .... I got introduced to Twitter .I found twitter pretty interesting as I was able to interact with some great personalities ( Dalai lama ,Shashi tharoor,Sharukh khan ...and at last Sachin Tendulkar).Then I found myself on the other side trying to cope with my friends on the tweets posted.Many of my friends were tweeting every minute like ," I am now having dinner"..." I am with my dog now ".....and even some cricket fans(mads) started commentary of matches through tweets....When I hardly had 100 tweets ...my friend already had gone past the 1000 mark.Anyway after my 100th tweet I proudly stated ,"Thanks my followers...at last this is my 100th tweet".

FaceBook Fever

   Then came the facebook fever,the privacy issues and frequent facebook invitations forwarded to my inbox by my friends were not enough to provoke me to open a facebook account.But my cousin who just completed 10th took me to the facebook world.......He just wanted me to be his neighbour in Farm ville.I was surprised and happy for a 10th std student ...who wanted to look after his farm in virtual world daily ( without watering his farm he wont go to bed ).....But when I asked him whether he wished to plant a tree outside his house and water it daily....He just shocked me ...by saying politely ...," No brother its lot of hard work and I don't want to waste  time ..I don't even have time to study".

The Orkut Suicide
  One day one of my friends asked me how he can delete his orkut account . I was happy and even congratulated him to taking such a step which I couldn't......I gave the steps in detail for deleting his orkut profile.Later he  gave me a message that he wanted to stop orkuting and migrate to facebook as he found that he didn't have enough time to spare for both.

      Anyway don't misunderstand me  that I am against social networking sites ....and stopping you from scraping or tweeting ...The truth is that sites like orkut ,facebook have their own advantages ....but sometimes people occasionally use these sites for little matured things and only disadvantage is that they later get addicted to these virtual world's.But ya I am still tweeting ,sending scraps and blogging.............
