I Am Addicted to Facebook

    Maybe I am, but it's not too bad.

    I do get annoyed when I realize I wasted two hours out of my day reading and responding to local news articles. I mostly read the comments sections. They're entertaining and I can't stop myself when I start! On days that I know I have a lot to do I avoid FB altogether. Damn...

    "quick! Put That On Facebook!!!"

    I have it on my phone so I check it constantly. Hey... I can't help the fact that I want to know what's going on with my friends. I care, you know. I also enjoy putting up random pics and funny things the people around me say XD

    My New Addition.

    Face book seems to be my new addiction. I love how easy it is to communicate with friends and family. I have found so many people on face book too. Ones that I haven't seen in years. My 10 year high school reunion was all organized on face book. I just love it!

    Addiction is the right word,

    it's taken control of my life and everything . If I don't use Facebook I start getting emails that I have not checked it . I work in IT and it's hard to ignore such messages and emails.

    Enough Is Enough

    I like facebook, but I have had enough. I realise now that I am glad I moved away from my hometown. People have changed so now it's time to change things. So I do not get to know anything about them and now focus on my business with social networking.
