    "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

    Fighting Facebook Addiction...winning????

    So, I've deactivated my Facebook for quite some time now. For starters, I have been busy trying to get into medical school, so I pretty much don't have time to be bothered by the constant *Dinging* of my phone as I get zillions of notifications. Knowing me, by not just not...

    My Facebook Experiment

    It's embarrassing to admit, but I totally got hooked on facebook. I love that I can hear about my friend from Kindergarten, creep on my high school sweetheart's pictures, and just basically stay in contact with a lot of people that wouldn't likely be in my life without it. About...

    Facebook is a love-hate relationship for me. I love being able to keep up with all my friends and their lives, it's a lot easier. I have over 500 friends and I personally know them all. But I hate how much of my time it takes up. On the other hand, I love being able to plan...

    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.
