People are very addicted to Facebook, I found it to be rather boring and I'm not big on uploading pictures of myself either.

I also find facebook not so interesting because there is no focus. different people talk different languages/things. whereas in mylot you come to a subject/topic and discuss.

I think many people are and this is getting out of hand, I must be careful cause yesterday was the first time in my life I was on FB the whole day: because of the GAMES! I think FB is an evil genious you know, they try to get people by their weakness, like games, or news, or people's exhibitionist side where they want to show off their bodies in pictures and all, and they are basically taking all over. There are blog feeds in there, all blogs are setting up fan pages so you can know what's going on from FB already without needing to check the site.

I think it is. For example is my classmates, during laboratory hours, they consume most of their hours browsing Facebook in which they only accomplishes little in our respective subject. My sister also is online everyday and consumes almost 3-4 hours in Facebook alone. As you can see, Facebook helps us connect to people from other places and gives us the feeling that they are always near to us. However, i think the bad side of using Facebook is students accomplish little things when using internet when they can study, learn online, earn online and make themselves productive online.

I think that there are a lot of people that tend to be on face book a lot, but i think that a lot of people go on there just to see what other people are getting up to.I tend to only go on there, if i want to leave a message for a friend, as an in box, or just to check to see when a friends birthday is.I notice that people put things on there just to get a like or a comment of some kind.

Addiction for anything or forum is bad. Some people are addicted to facebook. I am desirous of visiting not only facebook but also other forums like mylot. That way I may be spending a negligible percentage of time on facebook. I use facebook to tell people about my other sites.

I definitely think some people are addicted to Facebook. I'm on it a lot, but I don't know if I'd say I'm addicted. I mainly go on out of boredom. I have some friends who just get lost in the internet world. They add thousands upon thousands of friends that they've never even met (or will) in their life just to gain more recognition and entertainment. I'd worry about my privacy. I'd also worry that it could have an effect on my social skills. I used to be heavy into Myspace when it was popular, then I realized how ridiculous it was...Online almost has nothing to do with the real world.

I am not really addicted to Facebook itself. What I am addicted are the games in Facebook. I find it fun to play games in Facebook because they are all good to play. Because of these games, I learned to socialize with other people. I usually add them a my neighbors.
