The problem with social addiction is that people people are playing out their lives on the computer or the phone, and they can get stressed from the comments made on these sites and take status updates personally. This causes stress and depression. In some of the most extreme cases, Facebook depression has led to alcohol abuse, self-harming, and eating disorders.

One thought on “Social Networking Addicted

  1. I do think that social media are addictive. But I doubt about the fact that it is a harmfull addiction. Off course, the last thing people do before they go to sleep is checking Facebook. And when they wake up it’s the first thing they do.
    But, I also think it is a new way of communicate. In the old days when there were no smartphones or computer, people had to go out to meet each other. But nowadays it’s a lot easier to stay in contact with your friend true Facebook or Twitter.
    You say that it is a problem that people are playing out their lives on the computer or phone, but I think it’s a new way of live.
    I also question if people get stressed or get depressed by comments made on social media. Off course, if you get bad personal comments everyday you get down. But most of the time the comments are not that personal.
