According the graphic, which lists several reputable sources here are some of the more crazy facts:

- The average attention span of Americans has gone from 12 seconds to 8 seconds in only a decade
- People who have been using the Internet for a while appear to have a fundamentally altered pre-frontal cortex
- Internet signals (like that little red thing in Facebook) trigger dopamine responses related to love and sex, causing us to come back for more
