Is Social Media Taking Over Your Life? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you if you’re already using Windows 8. Windows 8 has been out for a while, but it was released officially only last week. Considering this fact, a surprising amount of you are already using Windows 8 on their computer. Want to know how many? Keep on reading.

Out of 933 readers who voted, 35% already use Windows 8, 13% are not using it yet but plan on installing it soon, 15% plan on installing it in a while, and 37% are not using it and don’t plan to, either. All in all, it seems there is no consensus, and while the vast majority is either using Windows 8 or planning to install it soon, there is still over 30% who don’t even plan to. Then again, these 30% might not be Windows users at all!

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Social media has been around for several years now, and already it feels like it’s been around forever. With huge social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, almost everyone is taking part in this new social game. But how big is this part? Do you talk with friends on Facebook more than you actually meet them? Do you go out with friends only to find yourself immersed in Twitter on your smartphone? On principle, social media is there to help us make connections, but is it really helping, or is it taking over your life? It’s time to tell us what you think!

What do you think of the part social media plays in our daily lives? Share all your thoughts in the comments.
