Social media addiction: a disease likely affecting millions, but one that’s hard to track because it comes in many forms. The afflicted may reveal themselves as serial likers. They may have push notifications set for the most minor of social media updates. They may self-identify as “mavens,” “gurus” or “ninjas.”
But regardless of their appearance, they do walk among us. Of that we can be sure.
The following infographic, which comes by way of the marketing software company Marketo, details 10 of the most common types of social media fiends.
There’s “The Constant Checker,” who can’t go more than a few minutes without looking at his Twitter mentions or Instagram likes. There’s the Klout-obsessed “Self-Proclaimed Influencer.” There’s also the “Multi-Mayor,” who has to check in to a location every time she moves ten feet.
Any of these stereotypes hit a little too close to home? We certainly have to admit some do here. Check out the full infographic for more. Then let us know in the comments — which of these personalities do you identify with? Are there any you would add?
