Social Media addiction

- New research shows social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are just as addictive as drugs. In the study -- students at Cal State filled out a questionnaire to gauge how much they were hooked on Facebook. Researchers found Facebook activates the same parts of the brain that are stimulated by drug use. Social media users also suffer from withdrawal symptoms. They also found that students reacted to the social media site faster than they responded to road signs.
