Facebook, Twitter, texting... how addicted are you?

Profile: distancing yourself from the Internet

 

 - Profile: distancing yourself from the Internet
Your profile:
You started to question all this fancy technology when George Clooney announced: "I would rather have a prostate exam on live television by a guy with very cold hands than have a Facebook page" and you really decided to put the brakes on your virtual activities when Lily Allen quit Facebook and Twitter... You're in the process of changing camp!
Warning! Although more and more people are turning their backs on social networks, that's not a reason to completely renounce the Internet! Like all good things in life: you need to learn to consume in moderation. Don't deny yourself the pleasure!
Expert's opinion
We've all had this experience where, for example, we've listened to a CD over and over again, only to put it away one day muttering "I can't listen to this anymore!"! Excessive use doesn't always translate to addiction; it can lead to revulsion. After we've eaten too much, we often say that we'll never eat again!

These people have therefore taken stock of the time and money they've lost as a result of
their excessive use of the Net. They've simply been put off!
