This scenario, however, brings the question: are you addicted to social media?
Below are the response of Nigerians…

No. It involves a lot of money. With the little salary I’m earning, I can’t afford the data payment. Though it’s is good, it is somehow capital intensive.

No. I love replying and sending text but not to sleep on it. I am not addicted to it.

No. I am not addicted to it. Because I am not the type, l am old skool. I just use it for my product and once in a while if I want to reply my friend’s chat.
Yes, I am addicted to it. In fact, I can’t do without it. I love being online every time, it keeps me busy. It saves my recharge on phone. It helps me to know what is trending in our society.
