(NECN) – These days, it seems as if people can't live without social media.
But are people sacrificing regular connections with human beings as a result?
Our Student Reporter Jacob Athyal hit the streets of Boston to find out what impact social media has on people.

College students that were interviewed said that during finals week, social media was risky, especially since it is easy to get lost online.

One student said that if she rewards herself with five minutes of Facebook, it can easily turn into a half-hour.

One person said that she doesn’t like it when she goes out to a restaurant with friends and they take out their cell phones right away.
