Cuddling. Yeah, cuddling. Did you know that using social networks produce the same chemical in your brain as “spooning”?
Sometimes referred to as the Ã¢â‚¬Å“cuddleÃ¢â‚¬Â chemical,Ã‚Â oxytocin Ã¢â‚¬â€ a hormone produced in the brain Ã¢â‚¬â€ stimulates feelings of trust and security, reduces anxiety levels and may even produce positive sexual side effects. It sounds like a miracle drug, so how does one get their hands on it? Perhaps, simply by tweeting.
ChurchCrunch recently did a post that features a short video from Chris Brogan. Chris asks the question, “Are you connecting [on the social web] just to connect, or do you have a purpose?” In other words, it’s really easy to mindlessly shuffle from social network to social network, getting the “high” of connection with no real purpose.
