Social Media & the 7 Deadly Sins
Talk about an attention-grabbing research study! An advertising agency conducted a survey about social media habits and how and if those habits translated to the 7 deadly sins as stated in the Bible: gluttony, lust, greed, pride, wrath, envy and sloth. Of the 562 adults surveyed, 70% committed at least 1 of the 7 deadly sins.
Here are the rankings:
Gluttony (content overload) 41%
Pride (believing online friends are better than most) 37%
Greed (craving attention) 30%
Sloth (texting instead of calling; being online instead of exercising) 30%
Wrath (cyber bullying) 19%
15-24 year olds were guilty of more offenses than most age groups
25-29 year olds averaged 3+ sins each
Wrath skewed male with 24% vs. 14% female
Slothful skewed female with 33% vs. 26%
So which of the deadly sins do you think you fall prey to?
