Signs you are addicted to social media

From the days of HI5 to today’s Facebook and now Google+ there is no doubt, social media is here and there. If you are not part of it you are left behind. It’s like having a black and white television set.

Here are the signs you are not using but are addicted to social media:

The pictures you take are not for “memories” but rather updating your social networking profiles.

You compulsively refresh your social network page or load it every time you open a new browser window.

You spend more time conversing with your online friends than you do with your own family.

You take a few seconds to turn everything into a status update.

You’ve been suckered into using those spam applications that hypothetically tell you who views your profiles.

You spend hours a day playing Facebook games.

You forgot how to spell simple 3 letter words like “you” which you now write as “u”.

When you hear a joke in person, you say “lol” instead of actually laughing out loud.

You’re holding on to that MySpace or Friendster account, just in case, you know, it gets popular again.

You are constantly putting an “@” symbol in front of someone’s name, whether in an email, on a forum, or even writing by hand.

Wn u bgn to type like ths:

You go to the mall for an hour and come home with 10 new blog ideas.

You randomly “poke” coworkers on your way to the restroom.

You wish people would quit sending you so many emails and just send you a 140 character tweet.

When you meet someone new, you give them a link to your twitter account instead of your phone number/email address. That said follow me on twitter @sanimoyo.

My take on a quality affordable South African webhosting or get it directly from Amplehost.

    You are so right. I’ve seen so many people, from nice, lovely people, turned into some internet socialization-geeks.
    Thank God I am not one of them!
