22. There is growing health research literature on the subject
Nicholas Carr's 2010 book "The Shallows" is a good overview.

I also recently picked up but have yet to read "Virtually You: The Dangerous Powers of the E-personality" which explores multiple and dissociative personality disorder and internet use. It has 20-pages of footnotes referncing a lot of emerging research in this area.

Bottom line: there is growing evidence that those of us who are heavy users of social media are careening into dangerous territory in terms of our overall mental health.
