Different Social Media platforms are growing these days; they enable you to share your life through photos, videos, and audio, in addition to various other tools. All these different tools are becoming our new global language.

Social media has become a core medium to connect with the world whether on a personal or professional level. The sky's the limit with how and whom one connects with.

Yet, there is a huge question about our privacy, our human contact and our reality. Some people do feel the threat and some do not. Some choose to disconnect from this virtual reality and some believe they are in control of the content they share, view and believe. Another group would say, “I love it, what’s the worse that could happen?!.

Creating an exhibition in a physical space from what is basically an online phenomenon presents its own set of challenges. The exhibition is a way to share the importance of Social Media in today's culture and society and to look into those challenges that it brought to our lives, how are we dealing with them and how social media is now a core element in our contemporary society and life.
