In addition to what Marie acutely outlined on the given topic, it would also be essential to mention how technology, including social media, can be heavily addictive for the average person and how that inevitable element of technological usage and reliance impacts one's everyday operations habitually. People often worry that if they are not in tune with the online world of information and social media 24/7, they are missing out on one or more important things or trends, and will therefore assumedly fall behind in everyday life. This notion can create distortions of reality and inferiority complexes among online social media users and depression can ensue before too long. Plus, the competition created among online users with regards to the number of Likes/reactions received, views accrued, and comments posted in response to every status update, photo posted, article shared, or meme uploaded onto one's own online social media profile within one's own social community can wreak havoc within one's own conscience when it comes to determining their own "rank" among the online world as a whole over time.
