Is Social Media addictive?
Do you have to check Facebook and Twitter every few minutes? Tweeting, texting, posting everywhere you go? A study by consumer electronics shopping site, Retrevo.com went looking for answers on how much control social media has on peoples’ lives. The results:
- 27% of respondents under 35 check Facebook more than 10 times a day.
- About one third of people under 35 tweet afrer sex (36%) and on a date (34%). 40% tweet while driving!
- Twitter is addictive as 39% of people under 35 check updates more than 10 times a day.
I believe that social media will take a very large part of the time we currently use for “web”, TV and other media. But the question of how often do you check a social media site will soon be pointless. Most of us will use it continuously. Nobody asks how many times a day you check TV. Or… better yet, how many times a day you talk to people?
So the answer to the original question is “yes” as much as whatching TV or talking to people is addictive.
