Lets find out
Start off by taking this little quiz and see where you stand.
On this quiz I got “you are not addicted to social media”, which I thought was a fair assessment mainly because I only have a couple forms of social media and not a big user. The results of other people taking this quiz I found very interesting. First starting local I had some of my roommates and friends take this quiz and majority of them got “you are addicted to social media” but they wouldn’t classify them self’s as addicted to it . This makes a lot of sense because today the norm is being on Facebook, snapchat, instagram and twitter and no one thinks am I spending too much time in my virtual world. Then observing the larger results posted by the author of the quiz only about ten percent of people who took the quiz are addicted to social media. This is interesting but makes sense based on the unknowns of the results posted by the publisher of the quiz. We don’t know the demographics of the people who took the quiz. According to research and public data younger people tend to use social media about thirty percent more then older individuals. (This can be seen above) A question to ponder is. If we are this addicted to social media when it become popular in middle school. How is this affecting the youth in America? Are they at risk of losing basic social skills?
