Abstract

  Undergraduates enrolled in various institutes are highly exposed to usage of internet and most of them are having Facebook accounts. With the advent of availability of internet as data packages in smartphone, which are predominantly preferred by undergraduates worldwide, Most of them are engaged in some form of media use, particularly texting, music, the Internet and social networking like Facebook. So far most of the Indian studies have limited themselves to certain media such as cellphone and internet.
