Brem, I think it's a serious problem with people now a days and one that I caught myself starting to become a victim of until I was able to put life and the internet into the proper perspective. I laugh to my self when I go out to dinner and every member of the family at the next table is looking down at their mobile devices. It's insane and a bit sad. I stopped using facebook for the most part with a once a week check in. I never used twitter, instagram or snapchat. The same for video games, My GF's kid who is a 20 yo male stays in his PJ's all day and night behind closed doors in his room playing LOL with an occasional pop out to the bathroom and back into his room. I mean, at that age, I used to be out hanging with my friends every night, even if we just hung around at someones house or went out looking for girls. I am an avid video gamer but I make sure I spend my time playing games when it's the least intrusive on my social life and others if at all possible.
I hate when people are on their phones so darn much. Everytime a friend's over, they're on their phone. When I'm watching a movie or show with a friend, on their phone. I don't even own a phone, so I'm proud of that. And if I did I doubt I'd be on it 24/7 like some are.
I only use facebook these days to talk to a couple friends. I don't even bother with most of my other friends as I never converse with them.
But, I still use my PC more than I go out into the real world, and I need to get out of that habit.
