Modern technologies have definitely benefited our lives - from medical care to work efficiency, communication to space exploration, offering solutions to our world problems. And we just couldn't imagine our lives without it any longer. But with great benefits come many disadvantages. With the rise of the Internet, smartphones, and other similar devices, we are permanently connected to the cyberspace, whether we like it or not. And though it has made our lives more comfortable and entertaining, it has also made us dependable on modern technology and social media. Being online all time is not only possible, but it is also the de facto state for many.

With it comes one of the newest of society problems - social media addiction. It might sound improbable, but depression, unrealistic life expectations, and negative body image are just a few social media effects. And with it being recognized as a real addiction, people now can undergo a social media detox, re-shaping their habits.

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.
