Social Media Addiction: How To Know You’re Addicted [Infographic]

social-media-addiction-explained-header

Ever since social media became mainstream, there has been a growing concern. It’s all about how much we use this new communication channel, and how our lives are affected by it. There are a lot of people out there who really can’t stay away from social media. They are constantly online, and they are always available to connect and share. Is it healthy? Well, I guess that depends on how much you allow your every day life to be interrupted by it. For some people, social media addiction has become something that hinders them from doing what they really should be doing, whether it’s work or just taking care of everything around them.

There’s no doubt social media addiction can become too much and implode a life from within, even though the communication is with other people. Some people would even compare it to a gamer who has played World of Warcraft for 4 days straight until his body can’t take it anymore, and it shuts down. Of course, this can ultimately result in death. But is that really the case with social media? Can you become so addicted to social media that you literally lose out on everything life has to offer? Some people seem to think that.

So how do you know that you have a social media addiction? Well, in a new infographic called Surrender To Social Media: Is It Addiction? brought to us by Total DUI, you will be able to read up on what social media addiction really is, and how you know when you are actually addicted. Included is a little questionnaire which will help you determine your level of addiction, if any at all. I think it is safe to say that in order to follow what happens in the world in almost real time, you have to use social media. Whether it develops into a social media addiction or not is of course entirely up to you. We should always remember that just because we might use it a lot, it doesn’t mean it is actually an addiction. It’s when important things in our lives get overlooked because we are using social media that things start to become problematic.
