We see this all the time, a loose electrical box in wall is compounded by lousy construction practices by the builder, and their electricians and drywall hangers. They cut the rectangular outlet box hole in the drywall too big, so now the electrical outlet ear tabs have no meat on the wall to push against. This electrical fail leads to you having a loose outlet that pushes back into the already loose outlet box. If your plastic wall plate shatters, now you have an extra dimension of loose outlets, because the outlet plate helps keep the outlet from sinking back into the outlet box. Then when you plug in a lamp you'll feel the loose electrical plug.

If you're looking for the loose outlet box fix, it is quite simple. You get a package of Outlet Spacers (5-Pack): https://amzn.to/2U7SlUe and they fold up like an accordion to build up the space you need to fill from where the outlet box screw hole is to the front surface of the drywall.This keeps your loose electrical outlet from pushing backward toward the outlet box, because that gap is not occupied by the shims to force the outlet to be a certain distance out front of the outlet box.
