After-School Special: Are you addicted to social media?
Posted On December 1, 2010
Remember those after-school specials? You know, the ones that aired at 4 p.m., before the days of Direct TV, the Internet and over-scheduled kids (when we were actually home after school)? Well, YourTango has brought back the After-School Special, tackling the issue of social media addiction, a subject that, had social media been invented in the ’80s, would’ve definitely made the editorial calendar of the After-School Special producers.
Too much of anything can be unhealthy, and the same is true for social media. So while this video is amusing, social media addiction is not. And although most of us are probably (and hopefully) not neglecting our children’s health and well-being to play “just one more round” of Angry Birds, all of us can probably think of an occasion that we were Tweeting when we maybe should’ve been playing a hand of Uno with the kids or throwing in a load of laundry.
