Facebook Addiction

...created by it. The internet is no exception. Numerous articles and studies have examined how the internet, specifically social media sites, such as Facebook, have impacted society and our behaviors. Many of these show, that excessive social media use can have a very negative outcome on various levels. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or D.S.M. recently added “behavioral addiction,” to its classification of addiction. Behavioral addiction includes internet addiction. (Markel, 2012) As more and more uses of the internet become available, users find themselves on the internet more and more, specifically social media sites. Many mindlessly log on to Facebook or Twitter now without even giving it a second thought, it’s just something to do to pass the time. It seems harmless, but how much time is being wasted, and how much can this affect our comprehension and attention spans? Life at 120 characters, and constantly updating status updates takes away from the brains capacity to focus on actual important information. It makes it easier to lose focus and ignore the actual life going on around us. In a recent Pace University Study, researchers asked 218 undergraduate students to self-monitor Facebook usage and meaningfulness in their daily lives. Results suggested the greater amount of time spent on Facebook/status updated the lower the self-esteem, and higher cases of loneliness.

Facebook Addiction Disorder

Newborn babies to near death grannies and even animals these days have a profile on this social networking site. This site has been so major that these days the first word that type into the World Wide Web is Facebook. 845 million users in just 8 years is a quite a record for any social networking site in the world. It has been so hyped up that to have a Facebook profile has become a basic need for certain group of people. A tool that is supposed to be used prudently has been used extensively by some individuals so much so that they have become addicted to it. In fact, psychologists in the United States of America came up with the term ‘Facebook Addiction Disorder’ (FAD) back in 2009 as they predicted this syndrome will take the world faster than it took for the site to become global. Well, their prediction has become true. This condition is considered to a serious mental illness these days, even worse since it’s caused by addiction that could be compared to the likes of drugs and cigarettes. Who would’ve thought that a social networking site could spell so much trouble? Based on the two articles, the key point to this disorder is due to the amount of time spent on this site. People tend to spend too much time on this site than actually do something about their lives. Those days when a working man gets his off day, he would be either......

Introduction Computer Addiction

...Introduction It is undeniable that the computer has become an essential gadget for daily lives of every human being. The Internet is an absolute necessity for both adults and children. It is impossible to believe to do anything without the Internet, especially from the youth’s perspective. Youths today spend too much time on the computer, surfing the Internet for hours. Some have become much too addicted and don’t realize that they actually suffer from Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD). Let’s have a look at how computers directly have effects upon youths nowadays. One of the main consequences of spending too much time on the computer that youths are likely to disregard is personal neglect. When one is too obsessed with surfing the Internet, they tend to pay no attention to their standard of living apart from the computer which they are using. Some may not take bath, clean their room, or eat well as they are much too focused on what they are doing virtually. Because of the long hours spent engaged with a computer, youths often have eating irregularities, such as skipping meals or overeating. This indirectly leads to health disorders, for instance, malnutrition of the youth’s body. Isolation, avoidance and no family bonding at all is another outcome which happens in a youth’s life when they get excessively addicted with the Internet. Because of spending too much time on the computer, youths have a propensity to reduce socializing with others. They tend to feel that......

The term “biodiversity” refers collectively to all these aspects of biotic diversity. The wide-ranging decline in biodiversity results largely from habitat modifications and destruction, increased rates of invasions by deliberately or accidentally......

Facebook Addiction

...There is an increased debate on Internet addiction where scholars argue whether individuals are addicted to the content displayed on the net or simply addicted to the platform.
