Life is short, and you never really know what will happen five minutes from now.
I was reminded of that earlier this week in an all too painful way. Monday started off to be a good day for me. I’m usually off of work on Monday but had to come in to the office to get out the sports page as Executive Sports Editor O.K. “Buddy” Davis was off on vacation. I was at my desk when Daily Leader Editor Laura Bond asked if I knew a Stanley Atkins from Grambling.
According to digitaltrends.com, a website dedicated to finding facts about social media, the average American checks their Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts a staggering 17 times a day.
If you consider that the average American sleeps seven hours a day, then that would mean we check our social media sites at least once a day.
Since social media is about 90 percent comparing our lives with others, social media is probably not beneficial to mental health.
I’m sure some psychologist will call this an addiction.
