Online Social Networking has had a significant impact on the lives of people by and large. It has transformed the way we connect and has propelled baby faced geeks like Mark Zuckerberg to the billionaires club. As we get used to this paradigm shifting movement, it is time to ask the following profound question :

– Social media has overtaken porn as the number one activity on the web.
– 1 out of 8 couples married in US met via social media.
– The fastest growing segment on Facebook is females 55 to 65 years old
