A J. Walter Thompson survey of youths between the ages of 19 and 26 in Singapore, China and the US shows that more than half of those surveyed found their social media obligations too demanding!  The survey said the youths felt pressure to “like” the posts of their friends which kept many of them online for growing amounts of time.  “Young adults are super wired, and that’s created an ever-present social obligation that’s starting to wear them down. They feel they have to look at and ‘like’ their friends’ photos and status updates to keep up and show they care,” said Angus Fraser, managing director of JWT Singapore.  Although the Philippines was not included in the study, it’s important because as early as 2010, US-based Comcast named the Philippines the social media capital of the world.
