Oh you think you are not falling in the trap set by the think tanks to drain your IQ away to not question the simple things that are happening to slowly make you dull then listen up, YOU ARE WRONG. Read on to find how you are not the only one losing your mind because of internet fixation.
Internet is influencing your thoughts
The freakiest thing that you can know is happening to you is you and everybody spending hours on the internet is that we are becoming gullible to what we read online and following patterns that we see online. It is actually causing a physical deformation of the brain.
Internet exposure causes depression
As long as the Internet has been around, there has been a high correlation between number of hours spent logged on and greater feelings of sadness and isolation. Even though the Internet in theory makes it easier for us to connect with others, it really just ends up making us feel depressed and alone because we aren’t really spending time with people.
Facebook is making us envy people more than ever before

More chat friends increases stress
Conventinally, 90s kids will remember what it used to be standing near your friends house yelling their names out to call them down to have a game of football or cricket in the ground, go cycling and make plans to visit the nearby hillock for a day of trekking but now with the number of chats and the even higher number of chat clients, keeping up with friends is more of a stressful event than a stress buster.

Encyclopedias have gone out, just Google it
Google has not only become a means of accessing any and all information at the swap and click away. But what ever happened to information retention in our brains. Do you find it difficult to remember the notes or the theories you studied in school or college? This is to blame.
