Abstract

Social media has etched for itself a new chapter in the lives of people living in this century. The explosion in the field of information and technology has shrunk the whole universe within the palms of today's generation. The mushrooming of various social media platforms across the World Wide Web has brought a sea change in how people communicate with each other. Social media has become a common platform for the people around the world to share and exchange their beliefs, culture, traditions, knowledge, views, etc. The various studies that have been conducted by different social and psychological groups have put forth striking similarities as to how social media has impacted men and women of the present times. This study brings out the positive and negative aspects of social media applications. The usage of Instagram as a social networking application is dealt with in detail. The comparison of Instagram alongside the various social media is brought about in a lucid manner.
