Is Internet Addiction Real? - Facts & Infographic

Is Internet Addiction Real? - Facts & Infographic | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here are the signs of Internet addiction. Learning to balance the internet and computer into daily routines is a challenge for many people. Some get so frustrated they decide to avoid, never use or get rid of the internet and computer use in general.

 

Many go through a fairly long term obsession because it does seem that if you do not spend a good bit of time with the computer in a range of ways you do not master it well. I have seen in our family after the obsession there seems to be a fading off of obsessive use over time. Sometimes just because life happens and there is no time, but also because a certain level of success happens and it requires less time to maintain skill than develop initial skills and knowledge.

 

This article does not address the fact that many online friends we never have or would even want to have dinner with DO share common causes for real and are passionate about these causes when many of our families and real friends do not find them interesting and are not passionate.  These efforts to make the world a better, more just place to be are a very important function of the web.

 

The time spent on the web at work or at home can also help stimulate growth and inspiration for your work. I connect with others in my field and they inspire me and spark ideas. I am the only one at my job and does what I do....Many only appreciate what they do or certain select people in the dominant areas are doing. Connecting during the work day online can encourage a person to stay on task and reach for a higher goal by this contact to online networks in the same field of work. Real life contacts can often take the wind out of your sails. Online you can seek uplifting, informative,  inspirational contacts and info where onsite you must take what you get.

Maps of the World (a great website for maps!) also does weekly polls. This infographic is the 59th Fryday Poll, and it begins with a definition of addiction from the Merrian-Webster Dictionary and then goes on to explore a range topics including:

* A Generation of Internet Addicts

* Is Internet Addiction a Mental Disorder

* Facebook Addiction

* Gaming Addiction 

and much more. A variety of resources were used in creating this infographic (including a survey they offered on their website, Facebook page and through Twitter). The site does provide a link to a text only version and it says that version will provide references, but it was not working when I check it out.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Yes! Win now more of us need to encourage both companies to move into more areas to increase competition. We don't need more monopolies. We do need to build these competitive offerings with our business when they make it affordable and deliver good service.  If I can get a good deal and get a connection through them, then ATT is out of there  for me. I already use T-Mobile for my hot spot and usually get a good connection most places even when ATT won't let me connect. due to weakness. We need these companies to compete through improved services, offering and better connections. I'm all for foreign groups to if they are required to find an American 51% co-owner to come here. I have used great service companies when abroad.

This should give FB and others reason to consider how they treat would be future users if they intend to stay in business or move on to build trusted new online designs. Reputations stay with you along time if people feel you do them wrong. Trust is hard to get back.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Progressive watch dogs need to go after Obama on this one and every other representative as well that threatens the strong user controlled and influenced foundation of the internet. Our ISP is hired by us to deliver us to where we choose to go one the internet. They need to pay us if instead they want to take us to places they want us to go or divert us one way or another from access to what we pay them to get to and not deliver the service we pay them to deliver by blocking or slowing data....We need to  have their charter of companies with deliberate, poor, online delivery of connections and service revoked and we then charter a company that can deliver the goods!


The regulation CPC are calling for would be a rule, bill or law that says no one including the government can interfere or double charge us when connecting with any legal activities we choose to connect to through our services. This would  prevent the internet to falling evermore into just one huge marketing and misinformation media machine that is driven only for the few rich enough to take control of the messages.


We do not want or need the internet to be like a cable plan package or phone package. Most of us view the internet the same as our main phone line and personal mail which are both classified as common carriers because they are that and so is the internet these days. Many have even dropped their main phone lines and rarely use paper mail. The internet was artificially removed from that status so that big business could intervene, control and profit grossly from their take over of the internet and they can only do that by corrupting policy and policy makers. FCC Chairman Powell back around 2006 or 2007 made this change then went to work through the revolving door as a chief lobbyist for those he rigged the game for. The new chairman of the FCC came from through the same door to finish the deal for the big ISPs and Cable companies.Obama appointed him and nearly no one in either house opposed the appointment. Do we really need to sit on our hands and let that happen?
