I Am Addicted to Internet Social Networking Sites

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 384 People

    So glad I know how to have meaningful

    interactions on and offline. I just wish people around me were more open to face to face communication.

    Instead of being more connected to the world

    around us, social networking has made us more isolated and self-centred.

    It is good to have people that understand you. It is hard to find people that I can truly talk to around here.

    I don't believe this a good thing though.

    Sure, they allow me to talk to people without feeling nervous and can be fun, but on the flip side, it's not helped my anxiety/depression, it's made me feel disconnected from society. And before my life went wrong, it made me quite egotisical and self-centered, believing my...

    Social Networking

    I have decided to live completely without it. The reason is because you only get a certain time in your life, and I don't want any of it wasted. Facebook is a waste. The hours I spent on it when I could have been engaged in other more constructive projects. It's important for me...

    I Have to Many Sites!

    I guess you could say that I'm addicted to social networks. It started off for me with Yahoo 360, then My Space. I made the mistake of joining almost every site that someone sent me an invite to. It got a lot worse when 360 died. I realized that I had a site on just about every...

    It annoys me to know this to be true with most

    people - that this virtual vortex creates mass attention deficit disorder to point where real-time communication and interaction is adversely affected through this advent technology. *Sigh. Real eyes, realize. I'm awake [mostly].

    Why Ladies/ Girls Get The More Hits Or Comments On Any Post They Write

    Networking Social

    Wis.dm is for questiong, EP is for friending and whining, and crying, Myspace is for rl friends and keeping up with likes, Facebook is for gaming, But there are so many sites to hop, I doubt I could ever hop them all, Even if I had cable interweb.
