I came across this interesting article on justaguything. A new survey of social media users found that 36% of people under the age of 35 often use Facebook or Twitter after sex. Guys are more than twice as likely to tweet after sex than the ladies. Hmmm.
IPhone owners are three times more likely to use social media after getting jiggy than Blackberry users. If you obsessively check Facebook and Twitter for updates during the day, don’t worry – you are not alone. Most people check social media sites at least a couple of times a day. And many of you apparently have no lives because 27% of people check social media more than 10 times a day.
Facebooking and Twittering are sucking the life out of you, and not in an Edward Cullen kinda way. As social networking sites tend to diminish meaningful face-to-face contact, the increased isolation could alter the way genes work, disrupt immune systems, cell proliferation and hormone levels and impair mental performance, according to findings by psychologist Dr. Aric Sigman of the Institute of Biology in England. This increases the likelihood of problems like cancer, stroke, heart disease and dementia. The next time you comment on someone’s Facebook status, suggest meeting up for a cuppa instead.
Get a grip or you could end up sick!
