This article explains the results from a study done by Retrevo on how addicted people are to being connected to social media. Are you connected to the net 24 hours a day? Think about where you get your news from. Are you using Facebook while getting married or lying in bed? Read the article and determine where you stand in the social media audience members.What is it about social media that causes people to spend so much of their precious time trading information with friends [url=]Wholesale Frank Kaminsky Jersey[/url] , family and even giant corporations? Of course, we already know the answer; it鈥檚 fun and can be rewarding both socially and financially. The latest Retrevo Gadgetology study asked social media users questions such as when, where [url=]Wholesale Cody Zeller Jersey[/url] , and how much time they spend on sites and services like Facebook and Twitter. We were not surprised to learn how many people appear to be, shall we say, obsessed with checking in with their social media circles throughout the day and even the night.

Social Media All Through the Night

Not only do social media fanatics check Facebook and Twitter throughout the day [url=]Wholesale Kemba Walker Jersey[/url] , almost half of the respondents said they check in on the social media scene in bed, during the night or as soon as they wake up in the morning. Naturally, younger social media users said they tweet by night more than those over 25.

Will Twitter Kill the Morning News Shows?

Among social media users [url=]Wholesale Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Jersey[/url] , it appears almost half are so involved with Facebook and Twitter that they check in the first thing in the morning. With 16% of social media users saying this is how they get their morning 鈥渘ews,鈥?could we be witnessing the first signs of social media services beginning to replace "Good Morning America" on TV as the source for what's going on in the world? Can they also provide more stimulation than a morning cup of coffee?

Are iPhone Owners More Social?

You have to agree, iPhone owners do think different. We don鈥檛 know if it鈥檚 the device making it so easy to do social media things or the personality of an iPhone owner but iPhone owners stand out in this study as more involved with social media; they use Facebook and Twitter more often and in more places.

Social Media Anonymous

Need more evidence that social media can be habit forming? How about the fact that 56% of social media users need to check Facebook at least once a day? Even more impressive are the 12% who check in every couple of hours.

We Interrupt This Dinner for an Important Message

Just to round out the picture [url=]Wholesale Dwight Howard Jersey[/url] , the Gadgetology study asked consumers how they felt about being interrupted at various times and occasions for an electronic message. With everyone texting away on their phones these days, we weren't surprised to see over 40% of respondents saying they didn't mind being interrupted for a message. In fact, 32% said a meal was not off limits while 7% said they'd even check out a message during an intimate moment.


We're not qualified to declare a societal [url=]Wholesale Michael Carter-Williams Jersey[/url] , social media crisis but when almost half of social media users say they check Facebook or Twitter sometime during the night or when they first wake up, you have to wonder if these people aren't suffering from some sort of addiction to social media. From this study, it also appears that social media may have begun to replace more conventional sources for news with many social media users saying tweets trump their CRT [url=]Wholesale Nicolas Batum Jersey[/url] , LCD, or Plasma TV for that morning cup of news.
