Nevertheless, this research project has different chapters including literature review, research methodology and data analysis that can support the objectives mentioned above. The literature review includes various research studies from other researchers who have been related with this topic. Furthermore, the research methodology includes the choices of the researcher in order to conduct the research in an effective manner. The data analysis was presented for the purpose to analyse the collected data in a thematic manner. With respect to the above, a questionnaire has been conducted to ask the Facebook users to contribute to the investigation.
