Hm. Sounds like something written by someone in denial. ;)

Seriously, though, to try to insinuate that social media addictions are a "better" kind of addiction sort of misses the point of being aware of addictions in the first place. How easily any of us can be pulled into a trap of escape-like behaviors. Each individual has to decide and discern where that line is, but I think this really is a challenge of our day, and it's not just kids who are running into the problem. Whether or not its a literate form of distraction doesn't take away from the fact that it can be an unhealthy form of distraction. Loss of agency doesn't only come with "big sin" kinds of behaviors.

Look at the lillies of the field. They do not toil, neither do they spin. Aren't we SUPPOSED to live in the moment? For some people, blogging is their moment. For others, drugs are their moment. Escape brightens an otherwise unceasing bondage.
