Internet Addiction: How is Social Media Affecting You? Signs and Symptoms of Social Media addiction

Reality Check

Hello my dear readers! 

I hope you all are doing well and being safe. 

So, what was your schedule for today? Were you stuck with your phone for the whole day? Oh! Well, this is one of the common things to observe nowadays. People are addicted to their smartphones. Most of them claim that smartphone is like a wife, whose presence will make you feel loving while the absence will kill you gradually. 


Today, I am here to discuss this major concern about how addictive have smartphones become. 


First of all, we need to understand that what makes us to get addicted to things. Guys, things which we find comfortable, fascinating, which gives us a feeling of happiness etc., makes us to do those things frequently. Everything depends on the human psychology. It's you and your sense of belongingness which makes you get addicted to things. 


Some of the things which create a great impact on our mind and result the same as mentioned above are 


Information at its peak. Compulsive web surfing, playing games, watching videos, or checking news feeds can lead to lower productivity at work or school and isolate you for hours at a time. Compulsive use of the Internet and smartphone apps can cause you to neglect other aspects of your life 



Virtual relationships. Addiction to social networking, dating apps, texting, and messaging can extend to the point where virtual, online friends become more important than real-life relationships. We’ve all seen the couples or even friends, sitting together in a restaurant ignoring each other and engaging with their smartphones instead. No doubt the Internet can be a great place to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, or even start romantic relationships, online relationships are not a healthy substitute for real-life interactions. Compulsive use of dating apps can change your focus to short-term hookups instead of developing long-term relationships. Online friendships can be appealing as they tend to exist in a bubble, not subject to the same demands or stresses as messy, real-world relationships.
