I think I'm addicted to facebook, especially the games. Right now, I am constantly playing their "Island Paradise" game & "Bejeweled"! Are you a member of facebook? If so, are you addicted to any of the games or just facebook in general?

I'm on facebook but I haven't gotten into any of the games. I can see myself growing roots and turning into a tree if I ever start...

Yes, my mom jokes she is going to schedule an intervention. But seriously, I really love Facebook. I have joined Pet Society and I maintain a farm... Cool way of getting in touch with old friends too!

I am Cheyenne and I am an addict. *LOL* Yes, I too am addicted to facebook. I play just about all the games, and find myself spending more hours there then I will admit to. However in my defense, I have been dedicating my time to the "walk for the Cure' app. It's for a good cause, so I am justified.

hello koalatbs! i am a member of facebook, i am logged in there everyday, not for anything else but to check my house in yo ville, check the foods i'm cooking in cafe world, visit my farm! haha...i think i am guilty of being addicted to those games, coz even if i am away, my mind is still on those games, thinking if my plants are ready for harvest & my foods are ready to serve! have a nice day!

I played most of their games there like farmville, island paradise, sorority life and a lot more. Maybe before I was but now it started to slow down that's why I'm back here again to post..heheehe

I'm addicted to Facebook, but mostly because I just love going there and writing to friends, reading their updates, seeing their pictures, etc. I don't typically participate in many of the games. I have a farm on farmville but even that I've kinda let go. I played Mafia Wars at one time too. That was pretty fun! I just never kept with it.

Personally I am not a member of Facebook, and not really into sites like that as well. For me, the only Social networking site I am a member of is myLot. This is a Good enough site to keep me busy in for sure. But I see nothing wrong with people wanting to spend time there. Just depends what they're wanting to accomplish there as well.

Hi, Facebook is indeed fun. I spend at least an hour or so in the site to greet friends, tag them, and send them important messages. I have tried playing farmville and it was fun. But you know, I surf the site side by side with my earning sites. By this way, I would be maximizing my time not only playing but also earning.

Like yourself I am more addicted to the games of Facebook rather than the social aspect of the site. I play some of the trivia games, another game called Jungle jewels similar to bejeweled but there is only four levels but it is challenging. you might try that one. A lot of people I know like the Mafia Wars and the Farmvillle. I have not tried these yet, afraid I will get too addicted and never get anything else done! ha ha

Yeh facebook can be very addictive. I have an account there and I spend a lot of time on there literally doing nothing. I play some of those games such as poker, crazy taxi and the farming game. They are very addictive, once you start playing you cant get out of there. I try to control the time I spend there and so far its working well.

Bejeweled Blitz is my favorite game. I must have played at least 50 games of it tonight. I do like Facebook to keep in touch with my relatives that live far away. We have a blast farming together!

Hello koalatbs! Well, I check my Facebook very often but I don't think I've reached the addiction level yet. I like using it though. It's one of my favorite Social Network. The only applications that I use most of the time are Farmtown, Farmville, Restaurant City and Friends For Sale. That's where my friends are active too. I also tried Sorority Life and Superpoke but I don't visit it that much.

Hi there, hope you are doing fine. I am also one of those addicted to Facebook. I love all the arrays of quizzes, games and whatnot. Facebook has become a part of mostly everyone's lives and there's a certain kind of elixir when playing the games. I love it so much and can see myself logging in for a longer time to come.

I am a member of Facebook but i just go on it to see what is up with my friends and to see the photos of my grandchildren that my son and daughter-in-law post. I do not have time to play any games as am quite busy with other things. I am lucky if I get on it once a week.

I am a member but I do not have any real issues with having to be on. I forget for days on end basically until my BF who is totally addicted calls and yells at me because I didn't send him a cow on farm ville or didn't comment on his pictures. He is amazingly addicted and even facebooks from his phone when he is working...shhh I didn't say that!

I'm on facebook. I like to stay connected with people and also I really like the freebies on facebook. This week I scored some free eyeshadow and a box of chocolate dipped fruit. YUM! I haven't really tried the games, I guess I'm afraid I'd get addicted, and I don't feel like I've got time to play around. My sister-in-law loves the games and the people that she meets on facebook. I think that its great... maybe someday I'll check it out.

Yeah, I see ya lurking in numerous posts over there only because I know your real name. lol Wonder if ya still remember mine. I'm over at the Island, Barn Buddy, FarmTown, Farmville, ummmmmmmmmm Happy Aquarium, My Kitten, and Farkle. Think I listed em all. lol I just joined there bout a month ago and totally addicted to not only their games but also finding all my friends over there from here being some were banned or just stopped being active here. I haven't been active here myself much either which is why this discussion is prolly still sitting somewhere in my inbox along with the 200+ ones that I haven't got to yet.
