Addicted to Social Media?

This article really speaks to me. It outlines 25 signs indicating you need a vacation from social media. I am guilty of the following:

  • You enter a new place or social situation and you immediately judge whether it’s Instagram-worthy.
  • You speak in hashtags. For example, “I totally just fell down the stairs. Hashtag —fail,” or “I ate too many donuts today. Hashtag—first world problems.”
  • You’re starting to resent the frequency with which you type the phrases, “check out,” “click here,” and “for more details.”
  • You’re frustrated when you see low engagement on your most important personal status updates.
  • When you go out to eat, your food is always cold because you’ve just Instagrammed it into oblivion.
  • You come up with ideas for posts while hanging out with your friends. You immediately start texting yourself future post ideas.
  • You’ve used “Ermahgerd!” when speaking with your parents.

I think we’re all in the same boat right? #bloggerproblems

    Even more sad that my kid is waaaay too used to her picture being taken via iPhone. She is a master poser at 3-1/2.

    That last card is hilarious! And way too true!

    I catch myself hashtag-ing my thoughts sometimes. It’s bad. I had to google “Ermahgerd”. I had no idea what it was. So I guess that’s a good sign, right?!

    The first two cards are delightful. I am addicted to social media, but I haven’t gone this far……yet.
