It's become increasingly important to self-regulate online, says analysts

Social media analyst Yavi Madurai says it's important for people to self-regulate the amount of time spent on their digital devices and online,

Madurai, the MD of Black Box Theory, says online addiction may only get worse as more technological innovations emerge.

Fans on social media have been left worried after rapper and media personality Nomuzi 'Moozlie' Mabena appeared to be in a car crash during a live Instagram stream.

Some on Twitter are speculating that the video might be a campaign to promote road safety awareness.

Madurai says people need to consciously make psychological adjustments and rethink how much they allow digital media to consume their lives.

We have such an intimate relationship with these devices that we tend to think that the world doesn't exist around us.

How much time are we spending on our phone? What are we doing? What kind of power does it have on our lives if we are not controlling it.

Yavi Madurai, founder and MD of Black Box Theory

We are going into a world of serious [online] addiction.
