Profile: seriously addicted to the Internet

 

 - Profile: seriously addicted to the Internet
Your profile:
Quicker than Rachmaninov on the piano, your fingers are lightning fast on the keyboard, you know everything there is to now about text language, and if you're connection's lost, you're lost! Whether you want to admit it or not, you're no stranger to Planet Geek and your friends and family are starting to think you might have been serious when you joked about grafting your smartphone onto the palm of your hand!
Warning! The Web has become your second home and you spend more time recruiting new online friends than you do having a laugh with your real ones, and you do more online flirting than real-life snogging! Get to know the "off" button and come back to Planet Earth!
Expert's opinion
The first victim of Internet addiction is reality. The virtual world takes over the real world. Real ambitions, real projects, real partners and friends are essential for our emotional development. Communicating is good but speaking is better!

It's therefore important to keep a close eye on the amount of time you're spending online: two hours a day in front of a computer screen should be the maximum. As for checking your personal emails, three times a day is ample.

Digital technology isn't supposed to spoil real life. So every time a digital activity means you have to put off another activity until tomorrow, it's time to switch off the computer or telephone!
