Weaknesses of the book
In this book, the author is doing experiments in a very small place in India that place name is
Panchagrami.On the basis of such small village, we can not analysis all country that how social
media change the life of people of India Evolution of social media in that village that’s not mean
that this evolution of all country. In this book author, many times write of routine many people
that is so much boring for me, I think if the author writes overall what people want and what they
have is more effective for the reader. In this book author also appreciate students to make
closeness with social media that is very bad in some sense. Because of the closeness of
students towards social media divert from the study and this is the horrible condition for our
country. Also due to social media like WhatsApp and Facebook, the student, cheat more and
want to do less study because they got the copy of other student and don’t try me. In this
book author also appreciate boys for use of social media compare to girls, this is not so good
idea. The author mainly doing the experiment on adult and very less on old persons, if anyone
wants to know the view of old persons then how he can know. The author makes a perception
about young girls that mainly use social media for love and affair this gives a bad message to
our society. And because of this bad message parent of girls will more strict now and the result
of this is, girls will make a distance from social media by force and they can not use it for real
purpose. The author also doing caste basis experiments, in this time he needs to do
experiments on the basis of economy background only so that we can remove caste system
from our country and fight for economy and equality only. The author gives ideas to students
about using social media in the classroom.
