The increasing addiction towards smartphones has compelled man to escape away from the state of reality. Over the last decades, the use of smartphones and erstwhile mobile phones has become so ubiquitous that no society in this world exists without a smartphone. With the advent of social media, the use of smartphones has been exacerbated. This is because people find solace in expressing themselves on social media platforms and it can be easily done with the help of mobile phones as they are very handy to use. Whether people are working, relaxing or socialising they carry their mobile phones wherever they go. Although people can access information about the matter with the help of mobile internet, there are many people, especially teenagers and adults to get submerged in the digital world, far away from the world of reality.


Human beings tend to move away from reality because they don’t want to face the consequences. Instead, they find solace amidst the digital world by engrossing themselves in mobile phones.

However, when they are not getting the expected amount of likes they end up being in a severe state of trauma and depression. The unfettered access to mobile phones and the internet has lured teenagers into gaming such as pubg and clash of clans. The effect of these games is harmful as it accelerates social stress, cause depression, and makes a child a poor performer in everything he does. Another social media platform known as Omegle has come into existence wherein people can enjoy a free chat with strangers from a distant country. This also serves as a way to escape from reality and get indulged in eccentric stuff.
