Not so much. I think I can control myself.

No. But, with a focus I uses both.

I am not addicted to social media or smarphones.

I purchased my first smartphone last year after a long resistance against buying one. I had observed how people get addicted to continuously look at their smartphones in family or other gatherings. Honestly, I did not like it at all.

As a person spending most of the day time in my office in front of my computer I used to appreciate my calm evenings without a smartphone! I was looking at it as a great benefit :-) However, I could not resist much given the numerous services that are only available via mobile applications! Finally, I bought one and I keep checking my email or reading news updates at any chance that I get in the evenings. I must confess that I also enjoy using so many services that are purely available using smartphones, these days :-)

I want an iPad!

honestly, iam addicted to a smart phone especially to a common disease called Facebook, it took alot of time to just scroll on news feed without any attention to the posts i scrolled
it's just a habit

I don't think I'm addicted to smartphones or social media because simply I don't have these apps I think it wastes my time, besides I don't like the idea of putting my privacy in public.

I definitely do not addicted to smartphones or social media , actually I haven´t got social media at all in my smartphones , I think it doesn´t aggregate nothing in our lifes , ninety per cent of all things that people post on social media are foolishness that you can live without it , otherwise it is a time lost

I don't think i'm addicted to smartphones or social media , also i have some roles on my life to stay in same level .For example , i don't open the internet on my smartphone at the morning before 11 AM .
