Facebook – we all know it and use it daily. It is addictive and if you look at studies then today almost everyone who is addicted to this social media site wakes up and the first thing that they do is to check their Facebook page.
All real fans now know that Facebook is more addictive than coffee. You want to be really successful on Facebook. We open it every other minute to check how many have liked the post that we have just posted. The point here is that today it is not just you or me doing this. This has become the habit of many and almost every Facebook user has been trapped. Look at data and you will see that the average time spent on Facebook is more than 20 minutes each day! Be it checking the likes on their posts, reading others posts or looking at groups.
We have been trapped
We have started to judge ourselves by the number of likes that we get on Facebook. But why are we doing this? It adds no monetary value to your life and in fact, research has shown that too much addiction to Facebook can infact affect your health.Social media is good till it is used in the limit. Too much use is bad for us. But the sad part is that social media today is unavoidable and Facebook is the king of the group.
The number of users of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is huge and is only increasing each day. It is high time that we think and starts to analyze what psychological impact the social media sites are having on our lives.
Likes are not reactions anymore. This has become the way we judge ourselves. It has started to make us feel unwanted socially and in turn brings down our self-esteem.Infact, these likes from people who we hardly meet have become important and have become the way we have started judging ourselves.
