Are you a social media addict?

Stick men saying good morning

Are you a social media addict?

Hi, my name is Danni and I’m a self confessed “Constant Checker”!

Now I know that I can’t be the only person who wakes up and the first thing you do is log into Facebook and Twitter, even before brushing your teeth! I will lie in bed just scrolling through my news feed and checking my notifications for about 5 minutes. Many of you will think I must lead a very sad life for doing this, but the truth is, I won’t be able to function if I don’t have a nosey at what my friends are up to or to see if I’ve been popular enough for a mate to write a post on my wall.

I don’t think I could cope without constantly checking my accounts on social media platforms, in fact, I think I would probably break down and cry. And if I were to be asked how much time in a day I spend on these sites, I honestly wouldn’t be able to tell you. I would probably say a good hour of my day is spent being a nosey bugger and checking up on so called enemies.

This is where I begin to wonder if I actually have an addiction to social media, because I feel I do get withdrawal symptoms if my phone battery dies and I won’t get home until a few hours later before I can check my news feed again. If someone actually said they would pay me a million pounds to not check my Facebook or Twitter for a whole month, I think I would actually go insane and pull my hair out. I would become a total recluse and sit in a corner in my room, rocking my self back and forth.

Now guys, I want you to be totally honest with yourselves, do you feel that you have a bit of an addiction to social media sites? Do you get that funny feeling in your stomach when no one has ‘liked’ your status or ‘re-tweeted’ a comment that you thought was actually amazing? I bet you are all pretending that I must be completely bonkers at my honesty but I can tell you will be nodding your heads in agreement.

There are over a dozen types of social media addicts, so it won’t be hard to diagnose whether you are an ‘Alert Lover’ or a ‘ Freak out-er’. Either way, I’m pretty sure that you will find one that suits you!

So what kind of addict are you?

    I never used to be bothered about checking my Facebook, but ever since I’ve joined a few groups, I find myself checking for new posts whenever I get a spare couple of minutes. I’m not really bothered about who’s friended or unfriended me personally, but I do like to keep up to date with what’s going on in my various groups.

    So I guess that makes me a “Group-aholic” or… umm…. “Groupie” ? :P

    I use Facebook to communicate with friends and family more than texting these days, and if I didn’t have that connection I would feel lost. A free service that’s always at my fingertips – I think a lot of us would feel cut off from the world if we couldn’t use it!

    I agree with you Danielle that it is frustrating when you post a great photo or funny post, and nobody says a word or clicks the Like button.

    I check my Facebook and Twitter in a morning, throughout the day and again before bed. Partly because it’s my job to keep up to date with social media platforms, and Facebook is always updating, but also to stay in touch with friends and family around the world.

    Which addict am i? A bit of them all I think!

    Hey Nell! It’s funny you mention that, beasuce shortly after I decided to start this blog, funny T-Rex pictures started popping up everywhere. People post them on my wall all the time! I wish that was the reason I named my blog T-Rex Runner instead of my awkward body type, but it’s not. Oh well! Thanks for reading!
