Twitters Are Losing The Moment


Are you so busy twittering the moment that you forget all about enjoying the moment!

Social media is a powerful and helpful communication tool – but it can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how it is used.

There has been a 120% increase in milkshake multitasking amongst amongst multiple social media and electronic media in American youth in the last 10 years. Teens are exposed to eight and a half hours on average of electronic media per day. According to the Archives of General Psychiatry, this increased simultaneous exposure to electronic media during the teenage years is associated with an increase in depression and anxiety.

In Norway, the Bergen Face Book Addiction Scale was developed in response to research showing that addiction to social media is proving to cause the same damage in the brain as addiction to alcohol and cocaine. And is as addictive as drugs, alcohol and chemical substance abuse.

You just have to look around you to see that the majority of people are glued to their phones instead of making eye contact. This is communication pathology! I am not saying don’t use social media tools – I personally love them and use them to communicate with all of you. And social media is a science and God made all science. What I am saying is that its all about balance. The devil is a master of trying to destroy balance – overuse and incorrect use and obsession with and extremes are all forms of imbalance. We need to be aware of these probabilities he is trying to turn into realities through us. He has no power, he is defeated. All he can do is try and influence our decisions. Being addicted to social media is the result of a decision to not lead a disciplined Spirit-led life. (CL)
