“I used to start my day by logging into social media platforms,” says Tammana Singh*, a Delhi-based professional working with a MNC. It was 2013, and Singh would enjoy the prolonged chat sessions, the ‘likes’ and ‘comments’, her eyes glued to the phone or computer screen. She would check Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Viber and Hike. She constantly checked her phone, stayed away from people, talked less, and gradually even lost her appetite. “I never realised when I got addicted to social media,” she says. “I would stay online for hours, scrolling down people’s timelines, reading everything.”
