Finally, I would like to thank Jaharatul Kobra, Shiron Akhter and M. Ahsan Ullah for helping me out throughout the research.

Bangladesh as a Muslim and economically developing nation offers only a few recreational facilities to its young generation. And for the female members it is even below that. I expected through my research I would find out that female students of the private universities of Dhaka city are more into Facebook than their male counterparts. But after conducting surveys and online research, to my surprise I found that, gender has nothing to do with Facebook addiction.

Participants may use the sites to interact with people they already know offline or to meet new people. Facebook, on the other hand, enables its users to present themselves in an online profile, accumulate "friends" who can post comments on each other's pages, share photos,...
