    Default social media addiction

    A new report says that social media sites can be more addictive than alcohol or nicotine. While I find that a little hard to swallow, I do know a lot of people who would show withdrawl symptoms were they separated from their social media for any length of time.

    It's different. Nicotine and alcohol are chemically addictive, where the body can experience harsh physical symptoms if they're taken away. Social media is more psychologically addictive, I think, if such a phrase even exists.

    Both of the addictions are on the psychological matter. Nicotine and social networks are used to confront yourself and give pleasure. Once that pleasure is gone, you experience withdrawals.

    I think it affects people differently. Some people get obsessed with it and others just use it and go on with their life.

    Don't ever get dependent on anything.

    social media can be addicting at times but I don't think it's as bad as alcohol or other narcotics.

    Dr David Giles, a reader in media psychology who led the study, said that heavy use of social networks is not necessarily dangerous. “Some people would argue this addiction to social media is eating away at people’s lives, but what most of these so-called addicts are doing online is profoundly social," he said.
