Michigan, Feb 13: The advent of social media has changed our lives and they have become an inevitable part of the tech-savvy world.

In the present times, youngsters and children spend hours in a virtual world, that is created by social networking sites like Facebook.

But, for a 10-year-old Michigan boy, Colin, who suffers from a disorder similar to autism, had no friends even on Facebook.

The 'lonely' boy, who studies in 5th grade, told his mother, Jennifer Cunningham, that he did not want a birthday party as he has no friends.

Colin suffers from a disorder that makes difficult for him to socialise.

Then, his mom, in an attempt to cheer him up, created a Facebook Page for Colin on February 2, that has received worldwide response.

Now, the little Colin has 13,000 friends on Facebook and his Facebook page has got more than 1.6 million likes and he can happily turn 11-year-old on his birthday that falls on March 9.

Colin has been diagnosed with issues similar to Asbergers syndrome, that makes difficult for him to socialise.

Interestingly, as Colin has become famous worldwide, he has no idea about what 'surprise' his mom has planned for his birthday.

Here is the official page for Colin's birthday:
