Checking Your Social Media Pages Is as Addictive as Nicotine

Researchers say trying to resist social media is an extremely difficult task.

While some may see this as a negative (an addiction), it is great for businesses trying to market to potential customers.

The Reason: You know they will be on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.

Studied from Nielsen Market Research has concluded that most users spend up to 7 hours a day on social media networks, overtaking TV as the most used media platform.

How much of a social media person are you?

Are you the type of user that occasionally tweets or updates their Facebook status, just so you don’t feel completely out of the social media loop?

The desires for social media may be comparatively harder to resist because of their high availability and also because it feels like it does not cost much to engage in these activities.

In a study conducted by the University of Bonn, in Germany, it was found that those who are seemingly addicted to the Internet may be addicted due to the CHRNA4 gene, which also causes one to be addicted to nicotine.
