Facebook, Twitter, texting... how addicted are you?

Profile: mildly addicted to the Internet

 

 - Profile: mildly addicted to the Internet
Your profile:
You can't help but pull a face when you discover there's no Wi-Fi in the lovely B&B your other half booked, making it impossible to keep your friends up-to-date on your weekend away! New technologies are a way for you to get a glimpse into people's lives, including yours. Everything is to be divulged, without filters, for a genuine and spontaneous experience!
 
Warning! Through fear of going unnoticed or through a need to boost your ego, you invite anyone and everyone to view the "you" show! Put a bit more distance between the "real you" and the "digital you". Continue to develop your personalilty but do so away from prying eyes!
 
Expert's opinion
Excessive use of these new tools equals significant time consumption. And preference for a virtual activity over a real one is found in all cyber addicts' profiles. If you'd prefer to stay chatting in front of your computer screen even though you've turned down a friend's invitation to dinner, you need to ask yourself some questions.

If connecting to the Internet becomes an overbearing necessity, and if you become irritated when it's not possible to go online, there's a problem. The other sign, which appears gradually, is when your own world shrinks at the expense of
virtual group dynamics, either in a game or in the means of communication.
