Being addicted to anything is bad, why expect social media to be an exception. The street play faKbook highlights the society’s addiction to the internet, social media and smart phones. It describes how dangerous social media could be from deviating students from their academics to creating fake accounts and fake relations. It even goes to the extent of breaking the religious harmony and cultural unity, the backbone of our nation. The play also criticizes the generation of today for their obsession and addiction towards latest gadgets, deadly games and how they are being cheated by the mobile companies and other networks people have surrendered themselves to. Though we admit the major benefits technology brings to our world, the play highlights our inner desire to go back to those bygone days when relationships were revered and people were more connected both socially and emotionally.
