CHALLENGES OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media has the following challenges that are posed for its user:
  1.  Lack of Privacy – many of the users end up sharing too much information on the online profiles that should not be made available for the public eye. By the time they realize their mistake; it becomes late and cause problems for the individual. Stalking, identity-theft, personal attacks, and misuse of private information are the most common issues faced by many users on the social media.
  2. Deteriorating relationships – the increasing use of social media is affecting the relationships that people have with their families or their friends.

Teens have a notion that they have to fit in, or to be popular, or to do have better content than others due to which they have immense stress leading to mental illness.

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises.
