I totally see addiction to facebook as something that can happen to a lot of people. I mean I have been using the website for three years now and I more than 100% that i myself am addicted to it and the odd thing is i am introducing my family riends to it which makes it like a virus...I still love it which makes it even weirder. Technology in general can be addictive. Today is Facebook, yesterday was Myspace, future Twitter... Get a life connect with family and friends in person! Balance your life. Like B. Franklyn use to say: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

I have both facebook and this, but it is possible to call facebook and shut it down permanently or something.

I have to admit that I've gotten swept up into the facebook addiction myself. And I think people really just enjoy being connected to those in their life. I only think the addiction is bad if a) they are spending ALL of their spare time on it and b) if there is ridiculous, unneeded drama happening. Otherwise, I think facebook addiction is easy to overcome.

It's more of a fad then a addiction in my opinion. I have a facebook and I visit everyday to get updates on my friend and all that good stuff but if I'm up there more then an hour, it's because I'm bored. Facebook makes everything a lot more convenient now and that creates somewhat of a need for it because even fast-food restaurants have Facebooks to have people follow them on updates and everything! So consider that when you think about Facebook.
