‘Addicts fail to learn from their mistakes’
KUWAIT CITY, Jan 26: According to a new study, social media users suffer from the same problem of bad decision-making like drug addicts and gamblers, reports Al-Qabas daily.
Researchers of Michigan State University (MSU) discovered a link between excessive use of social media and bad decision-making, as well as the negative effects of social media on mental health, sleep and social relations.
Other sources stress that addiction to “tweet” (to post on Twitter) comes from the desire to seek the affection of others, express opinions, and gain more followers.
According to Independent Newspaper, addicts of any kind sometimes fail to learn from their mistakes and continue to obtain negative results.
