Why You’re Addicted to Social Media

Originally posted by By Thom Forbes, MediaTech | October 6, 2016 The social media recovery movement is gathering momentum. “Put Down Your Phone” commands the cover line of New York magazine’s Oct. 2 issue. The  headline atop author and proto-blogger Andrew Sullivan’s essay inside: “I Used To Be A Human Being.” The subhead puts it all in context: “An endless bombardment of news and gossip and images has rendered us manic information addicts.
