Are social Networking Sites Replacing Real Life Socialising?

There is a statement by famous sociologist Emile Durkheim that “Man cannot live without attachment to some object which transcends and survives him”. Man needs a social networking life. He needs a network where he can share his thoughts, feelings etc. Today’s life is so busy that people even don’t get time to say hello to their neighbors. Everybody is busy with their own lifestyle.  Now days, social networking has become online rather than offline. People are more interested to communicate online rather than visiting their places. People feel happy to receive an email rather than hearing a human voice or meeting face to face. It feels are if real relationships are under threat.
