The progress of science and technology was anticipated to steadily shift the society from mass production of the industrial age to the connectivity and efficiency of the information system. Little did we know that the information age caused chaos to the socio-ethical life of the people despite the wealth of data and statistics that it provided. No country or society in the world can halt the ongoing development of science and technology since the global world is becoming more cosmopolitan than ever. People are not only sharing information and technology, but also community values, culture and morality that are also threatened with new changes.
