Addiction of Social Networking sites

I admire you for your honesty. Thank you. I received the following from Devaki dd (Bangladesh) followed by her comments…..

“Psychologists from Leeds University say they have found STRIKING evidence
that some internet users develop compulsive habits in which they replace
real-life social interaction with online chat rooms and social networking
sites. The results suggest that this type of addictive surfing can have a
serious impact on mental health.”

“Universities, schools and companies are forced to limit accessibility to
Facebook because some people seem to be unable to perform other tasks if
they have access to this online social network. While Facebook is often a
great way of maintaining both social and professional relationships, it
seems to take on a destructive force with certain personalities.”

“There are an estimated 350 million Facebook users around the world who have
admitted to being addicted.”

“Have you ever wondered how some members of your online community can get so
overwhelmingly caught up in online drama with people they hardly know?
Well, there could be a real, clinical reason behind it, according to a new
study: The lead author of the journal of Psychopathology wrote that
over-engaging in websites that serve to replace normal social function might
be linked to psychological disorders like depression and addiction.”

Facebook cultivates impersonal relationships - without commitment,
responsibility and exchange of actual service. The discussions on such sites
are usually very superficial and shallow - if not to say prajalpa.
One communicates without seeing somebody’s face, body language, tone of
voice, etc. And especially if such communication is not based on a personal
relationship with commitment, responsibility and exchange of service, it
doesn’t promote spiritual advancement or change of character.
In fact, it gives some kind of an illusion that one is connected - I dare
say even in regards to spiritual leaders, however the real connection is
missing. And with such illusiory connection one is only escaping the deeper
process of purification.

Deep and meaningful relationships are being replaced with shallow internet
relationships - often with people one has never even met, and most likely
will never meet.
