Internet Addiction: How do you know? Is the Internet the New Drug of Choice?
But could social media, social networking or the Internet actually be the drug of choice?
Years ago when Facebook hit the scene no one really knew what to expect from the website.
The site was exclusive to college students and allowed them to keep in touch with their friends at different colleges… and that’s it.
Fast forward to today and social media, which has grown far beyond just Facebook with the addition of websites like Twitter and YouTube, has become an addiction that doesn’t just encompass college students, it encompasses teens, parents, and grandparents alike. Even our pets have their own Facebook pages or Twitter accounts.
