Nearly 50% (Half) of internet users need break from Social Media a new US study has revealed. Time wastage, irrelevant updates and lack of time are the main cause for break from top social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others.

The study by the online organisation hub reveals that online users are becoming overwhelmed by the increasing number of social networks and email accounts they manage. The survey of more than 2,000 adults ages 18 and older found more than 40 per cent of adult Internet users manage multiple social networking profiles, and more than half belong to more social networks or visit their networks more frequently than they did two years ago, 'BusinessNewsDaily' reported. Additionally, the average adult manages 3.1 email addresses, up from 2.6 a year ago. Overall, 35 per cent of those surveyed spend more than 31 minutes a day visiting social networking sites, and reading and responding to personal emails. Nearly 60 per cent of those surveyed experience anxiety as a result of missing an important event or status update if they don't monitor their social networks, and more than half report a fear of missing out, the study found.

Wow, who would have thought of such figures nearly 2-3 years back. With such boom of Social Network and being update with the environment has taken its toll in the youth. One of the main reasons for this is also multiple Social Network Media. What will be the scenario in near future if more social networks become popular in coming times.
