5 signs that you are addicted to social media

We can easily reach many people across the world and it’s safe to say that it has become a part of our day to day lives.

With every good thing however comes a downside to it and for social media is the fact that it’s very easy to get addicted to it and if you exhibit these signs then it may be time to take some time off.

1.The first thing you do when you wake up is check your social media accounts

You roll over to the other side of the bed and the first thing you do is check your Instagram to see what people have posted or check whether your number of likes on Facebook have increased.

Sorry to break it to you but you're addicted to social media.

2. Always taking photos and videos of every aspect of your life

You can’t go anywhere without wanting to capture videos or photos of the flowers, the food you are eating, the moment you step into a restaurant, the ant that may be on your table; just so that you can post the perfect photo on Instagram.

3.You can barely go an hour without checking your social media

If you hear imaginary notifications of your social media or can barely stay put for an hour without checking if someone replied to your snaps then you may be addicted to social media.

4.You use social media language to actually talk to someone

If you use social media language when you are actually talking then you might be addicted to social media. Instead of saying ‘to be honest’ you end up spelling TBH then it may be time to take a break from social media.

5.Refer to your friends by their social media handles

‘Hey wasup @joysweetbaby’ or ‘Do you remember when @davy123 posted this?’ It may be time to relax on the social media.
