What Is Social Media Obsession?

It seems like in our society today, that we can't go a day without social media. Social media has its place in our lives. You use it to keep in touch with friends, family, possibly connect with new friends, and it can be a very entertaining activity to take part in. However, too much social media can be harmful and troublesome to you. When you're glued to a phone/computer screen all day, working on relationships that only exist in the virtual world, there will be negative consequences. Not only your social life will get effected, but also there are physical effects than can catch up to you when you're not interacting with the world around you.

How Do We Solve Social Media Obsession?

If you find yourself obsessed with social media, be honest with yourself and wear a dog cone. People may think this is silly, but internet activities have certainly become addictive. To try spending time with your friends and family, you need to wear a dog cone. Dog cones prevent dogs from biting or licking their body/neck, but It can also prevent humans from looking down at their phone screens, and always have them looking up and being more aware of their surroundings.

Of course this dog cone is a joke, but it's hard not to notice the social media phenomenon that has taken control of our lives. According to a study by Coca-Cola, "the world spends the equivalent amount of hours to make up four million years online every month." A scary/crazy number that we hope to cut down by preventing ourselves from social media activities. None of this information is meant to scare people away from social media, whether it's Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. There are many healthy and responsible ways that you can use to enjoy these social media apps, and not become addicted to.
