A book at bedtime in the modern age has been replaced by Facebook at bedtime, according to a study commissioned by Travelodge.

Instead of settling down to a good book, 72% of UK adults surveyed said they check social networking site Facebook, while 18% send a Tweet on microblogging site Twitter at bed time.

But, experts have found that all this online activity last thing at night is affecting people’s sleep. The need to stay connected seems to be topping the need for rest.

Is online connectivity becoming a new-age addiction? Like most potentially addictive activities, avoidance is the probably the best policy, unless you are paranoid by being left behind.

Personally, I would vote for sleep over all else.
