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.
