Online addictions are making friendship a low priority

Apparently, Americans are sacrificing more and more of their everyday lives to stay online, says a recent survey conducted by JWT, the world’s fourth-largest advertising agency. When asked how long they could go without connecting to the Internet and still feel okay, 15 percent of the respondents said that they’d last only a day or less, while 21 percent could go no more than a couple of days.
