Sleep and Social Media
March 31, 2010
Twitter, Facebook and MySpace are a lot of fun. These social media Web sites make it easy for us keep up with the latest trends and catch up with friends and family. Although maintaining good relationships is good for our health and well-being, the jury is still out on whether or not our use of social media to keep up with others is biting into our sleep time.
With over one million tweets per hour, Twitter is perhaps one of the busiest social networks. If you'd like to keep track of how many hours you are logging on Twitter – or want to know just when your Twitter friends sleep, check out sleepingtime.org.
If the only time people are not tweeting is when they are sleeping, then this fun Web application might help you balance the amount of time you spend sleeping vs. on Twitter’s social network.
