Do you ever feel like you’re hooked to your screen?

We’re more connected now than in any other time in history. We can send a message to the other side of the world at the speed of light. And with this same technology we can do many other things we’ve never dreamed of; we can share pictures of cats, get into arguments with strangers, stay on top of the news, share baby pictures, send texts with rather suggestive emojis, look at satellite photos of countries we’ve never visited, gamble, play video games, take countless pictures and share them instantly… the list goes on ad infinitum.

The information we have at our fingertips saturates every aspect of our modern lives. We’ve become dependent on knowing every little thing. There are actually internet addition treatment centers now, something we could’ve never fathomed 20 years ago.We’re seeking the high brought to us by this plethora of information.

And some of us just might be stuck in the loop.
