A new study has revealed that social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google are as addictive as drugs.
Researchers said that people behave restlessly when forced to give up access to any electronic media or Internet.
New York posts also reported that people who are not updated about the information on the internet, text messaging and instant messaging are considered to be huge bores.
The researchers concluded “Giving up technology was considered by some to be as hard as quitting smoking or drinking.”
According to the study 53 percentage of people out of 1000 feel terribly upset when deprived of internet connection and approximate 40 percentage of people feel lonely when not allowed to go online.

-You feel empty when you do not log in, all you need is to spend time online. When not being online causes sweat, illness, and physical pain.
