It has its impact on our day to day life to professional life. Beyond our day to day overloaded work pressure and assignment, sometimes, we like to talk and share with our friends and colleagues, and Facebook is the best platform we prefer to talk and share and stay connected with our friends and colleagues for some non-academic and academic interest in the form of scholarly communication as well.
