Psychological Disorders Affecting Bloggers & Social Media Addicts

Web 2.0 Expo 2008

The Online Journalism Blog has outlined (here and here) some of the common psychological disorders that often affect bloggers and social media addicts. Examples include “Twitter Rage”, “Meme Orphanism” and “User Account Phantasm”.

Recently the beta launch of the popular new invite-only web service Pheltup has been causing some people to suffer from “Social Network Exclusion Anxiety”.

If you are aware of any other disorders like these, please report your findings.
