The result of the survey was quite astonishing because it was found out that social networking was addiction to 55 percent respondents, who became worried or uncomfortable when they had no access of social networking portals.

Survey panel of The Salford Business School retrieved information from 300 users. Surveyors found out that 50 percent users experience distress due to online updates, and exuded low self-confidence.

Two-third of them had troubles relaxing completely or even sleeping after spending time on social portals, while one-quarter respondents were having a difficult time at their workplace or in their relationship owing to online activities.
