    Re: cyber addict

    This is the second piece you have posted on this topic, I think. I would like to point something out. We don't say "surfing social media". We say "surfing the [inter]net" or "using social media".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
