Social networking websites like Facebook are becoming a necessity of life as more than 60 per cent of travellers use this online media to stay connected and several professionals find it as an important business tool,according to a recent study.

About 80 per cent of respondents said they access to social media daily,while 39 per cent among them said they “could not live” without these sites,a survey conducted by StudyLogic said.

The survey,conducted on 4,204 people via phone in US,UK and China,claims one-third of respondents log in multiple times in an hour to Facebook or Twitter and one-fifth check their profiles multiple times in a day while travelling.

Every third person would rather log in to share news than to make calls,it said.
