The burgeoning of online social networks like Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram is a distinguishing feature for the modern generation. From building business to social network, social media platforms are giving the much needed podium to grow professionally and personally.
Many people build multiple businesses using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other platforms to garner attention, build community and generate revenue. They will write and rewrite a status update or tweet many times, hoping that their creativity and humor will get more attention to their business.
However, many realize the aftermath of high social media usage, only when it becomes an addiction.
As per a study, ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’ can provide an addictive dopamine rush which leads to addiction. Social media addiction can result in enlarged position of loneliness and depression. If the use of social media is eating into normal socializing time there can be a problem of you feeling ‘lonely in a crowd.
