Whether it is business, interaction or knowledge sharing, social media has already become a trend among the people globally and the usage and addiction for Social networking sites is increasing. People spend a lot of time on social media to portray themselves to others and this trend is reducing the actual time spent by a person to meet some one personally.

One out of every 8 persons in the world are found to be using Facebook whereas 9 out of 10 users in the United States are found to be using any one of the social network. One out of every five minutes spent online is on social networking websites. Social media is consuming 20% of the total internet usage time.

It is a pity that the average number of friends in real life is less than the average number of friends in Facebook. There are 150 friends in real life on average when compared to 245 friends on Facebook. All the friends that we add is due to the people we already know, mutual friends, appearance of the person and to improve the business network.

Astonishingly 80% of the total posts on social media is only about the poster. It is like we are obsessed with ourselves. 35% of the 250 million photos that are uploaded daily, are tagged by the users themselves.

People with high level of narcissism or low self-esteem spent over an hour a day on Facebook. As people spend more time on Facebook, they start to believe that others have a better life than them.

  1. I agree…with the hint of that last question. Before Facebook everyone wanted (or so we were made to believe) their 15 minutes of fame….After Facebook, we can all claim those 15 minutes. The problem is, it’s just so much more than 15 minutes : ( We are definitely obsessed with our self image and how we stack up against everyone else.

  2. Love the question at the end: “Are we obsessed with social media or obsessed with ourselves?”
