A recent study revealed that Google and Facebook are climbing up the additive traits of humans. People around the world are getting addictive to Google and Facebook as they might get to drugs.

People involved in the study behaved like addicts (who are denied their drugs) when forced to give up access to the Internet (Google, Facebook, Twitter etc).

Giving up technology was considered by some to be as hard as quitting smoking or drinking in the new study of people deprived of their online habits. According to the study, a full 53 per cent of 1,000 people surveyed reported feeling upset when deprived of Internet connection. The study also found that, 40 per cent of those people feel lonely when not able to go online.

The following infographic also proves this tendency.
