If you have concerns about yourself or someone else regarding social media addiction, I ask you to reflect on some of the following indicators of addiction. If you experience any of these signs, you may want to consider making a change. • Preoccupied with Internet or specific Internet destination. • Defensive about time spent online. • Spends money on devices or online that should be used for bills or groceries. • Heightened sense of euphoria while involved in computer and Internet activities. • Failed attempts to control behaviour. • Loses track of time while online. • Sacrifices needed hours of sleep to spend time online. • Becomes agitated when not online or online time is interrupted. • Checks messages compulsively throughout day. • Spends time online in place of responsivities. • Prefers an online experience opposed to spending time with friends, community. • Seems preoccupied with getting back online when away from computer. • Loses interest in activities that were enjoyable before online access. • Escapes into the Internet to avoid responsibilities, painful feelings or troubling situations.
