Addicted To Tech? Here's How To Tell

Here in S.F., a “digital detox” is a pretty far-fetched idea. You’d be hard-pressed to stumble into any corner store, café, or restaurant without catching flocks of people glued to the glow of their devices. But, perhaps between all the rapid-fire texting, Snapchatting, Instagramming, and Lord knows what else — lies the deeper issue of digital dependency. It’s a real thing, people!
Do you get mini-anxiety attacks when your phone battery hits the red? Is it unsettling when an Insta snap gets less than 20 likes? Well, HuffPo has rounded up a few indicators to tell when you’re just a social media pro or harbor a real-deal tech problem. From headaches and phantom vibrations to using LOL and hashtags IRL, here are some tell-tale signs that it’s time to give those thumbs a rest.
