Love affair became the heep charming focal point for the world young and old age in blackmailing friends,couple or partner for sexual attraction.

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.”

“Is the man of the house home?”, they asked. “No”, she replied. “He’s out.” “Then we cannot come in”, they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

“Go tell them I am homey and invite them in!” The woman went out and invited the men in” “We do not go into a House together,” they replied.

“Why is that?” she asked. One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,”he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!!”, he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!” His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?”

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!” “Let us heed our daughter-in-law’s advice,” said the husband to his wife.

“Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”The woman went out and asked the 3 old men,”Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.

” Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?
“The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!”

Certain human behaviors, habits, and obsessions have been classified as addictions by psychological and medical organizations. As far as technology is preponderating the current generation, Somali girls breached and infracted the tradition cogitating of forge despite early on; Somali filles used to be known for their timorousness conduct. Initially to set eyes on Somali girls face was inconceivable However, of late after some casted off the shyness, modesty and the old customary on the social sites, Somali filles on Facebook become the divas rocking for their physique profile thinking they are at the utmost level of wisdom.

Facebook, which has more than 750 million users worldwide, has been the focal point for the current generation in exchanging ideas whether moral excellence or frailty. Facebook as a main method of communication between peers despite that its conducting to habituation. Facebook Habituation became the real prima condition affecting the juvenility.

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism. In good old days, people shunned doing shameful act because of fearing getting bad image in the society but nowadays as technology supersede the human brain all shameful acts became good custom and vice versa in hither and thither.

I interviewed two good friends of mine on how they carry on themselves when they are facebooking, do you know what their respond was?

“I login to Facebook most of the time to look how many likes and comment I got on the status I updated hours ago but on logging in I will found some of my friends getting more comments and likes on their status they updated some minutes ago whereas mine didn’t get much then that lead me to be jealous and to stay awake for hours facebooking.” Siham said.

It turns out that as many as one who use Facebook experience feelings of jealousy and envy after spending time on these sites notwithstanding It is very likely that you know people who absolutely must check their Facebook account when they first wake up, obsessively check it throughout the day, and never fail to log in just one last time before going to sleep for the night.

Ahmed a high school student told me,
“I feel relaxed and stress less when I am facebooking compared to when I am doing ordinary work, referring an idle mind is a devil workshop”
Maybe, Ahmed turned a blind eye and termed ordinary work as idleness. So will you refuse that Facebook habituation is becoming blind alley?

Our somali youth spend hours upon hours every day updating their status, uploading pictures, commenting on walls, reading updates from others, and searching for new friends to add thence they often neglect other important responsibilities, commitments, or people in favor of Facebook and their real-world relationships, careers, or schoolwork suffer due to Facebook addiction.

Ahmed add on, “Whenever I popped out the phone from the trouser pocket to make a phone call, I see myself already logged on to Facebook and I will continue browsing forgetting the call and sometime rather than the call even if its urgent, I see scrolling to Facebook thus making me to give the priority to login to Facebook first to see comment and updates before I make the call”

Worst of all, as a result of addiction you will find shameful thing being made hilarious exaggeration like updating nasty frail status and uploading dirty pictures in the name of looking likes and comments, On top of all the natural volatile emotions that characterize adolescence, you can now add the girlish gossip-mongering of the Facebook age.

However, with the growing use of Facebook as the norm for how we communicate, there is increasing evidence and suggestion that there may be a correlation between how often one uses Facebook and a linkage to mental health issues. The fact that a significant percentage of youth check Facebook even before they get out of bed is an indication of their addiction to Facebook due to that I believe Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master as in so much technology, so little talent thus showing it has become appallingly obvious that technology has exceeded our humanity.
