Facebook addiction

I decided to go a week(or longer) without logging on to Facebook. I came to this experience after writing a five page paper about Facebook addiction.

Here are a list of shocking statistics about Facebook and it's users:

* nearly 750 million photos were uploaded during the New Year's weekend.
* 28% of Facebook members check their Facebook before even getting out of bed
* there are about 500 million active Facebook users
*People spend up to 55 mins or longer a day on the site


*Most people don't even know they are addicted
*Addicts neglect real life events like housework, homework, personal health, etc
*Worse than a drug addict
*A woman killed her baby boy after his crying interrupted her game on Facebook
