Social Media Addictions

by Megan on 02/23/2013

Allison Morris recently contacted me about a post she wrote on social media addictions.  I do believe they are real – but exactly how much harm are we doing to ourselves?  Many jobs require social media strategy (my, how times have changed!) and many family and friends keep in touch, find each other, and have relationships based in part on their interactions online.

Can something that feels so right be so wrong?  Like other addictions, it turns out it can be harmful…but when our jobs and family/friendships depend on it, how (or DO) we manage our “addiction”?

There was a recent article in Science magazine about a teacher who posted pics of the moon and found some interesting pics from a man in Australia. Soon her students were exchanging ideas and photos with him and found how different the view of the sky was from “down under”. I shared this with my students and we had a nice conversation about social media connecting scientists around the world.
