We might wonder how it came to be that we started meeting psychiatric diagnostic criteria for addiction, not for heroin or alcohol, but for a social media site. It can't possibly be the "like" function that makes us irritable and anxious when we can't check our feed. So to what, exactly, are we addicted?
