Are you addictecd to Facebook? Five Clues to help you determine..

I gotta tell you. I've been addicted to something (Coke Zero, bargains....) and I've worked with those who are addicted to stuff. Everyone is addicted to something.

According to a story that just ran on CNN, there are no statistics on "Facebook addiction" .

Social media addiction, as of now, isn't an actual medical diagnosis.

According to CNN, you know you're a Facebook addict when

1. You lose sleep over Facebook

2. You spend more than an hour a day on Facebook.

3. You become obsessed with old loves

4. You ignore work in favor of Facebook

5. The thought of getting off Facebook leaves you in a cold sweat

Well, I'm sure many of us have gone through the 'newlywed' phase of Facebook. The idea of reconnecting with what now seems to be a simpler time in our lives, is appealing. It's almost an even playing field when we find someone we haven't seen in 20 years and they also have a muffin top or less hair.



And, really, the Facebook addiction, much like the blogging addiction, is realy a bad thing only when it become you and the realities of your life such as working to pay the bills.

I'm guilty! I'm a facebook junkie! It's the one place I reconnect with so many of my past friends...people I can go back and laugh with. There are some things of the past we can hang onto...friends! It has been fun....I like it over Twitter.
