And we just couldn't imagine our lives without it any longer. But with great benefits come many disadvantages.

The list below of satirical illustrations highlight some of the impacts of social media and general addiction to technology. Scroll down to see for yourself; hopefully, you will not be able to recognize yourself in these drawings, or if you do, it's never too late to get help.
