I always have facebook up in a separate tab while I'm browsing the internetz, but I most certainly wouldn't call myself an addict. I keep it up to
be able to chat with my friends (a lot of whom do not have cellphones/texting). I very rarely ever use it for anything else. Maybe an occasional funny
comment on a picture or status, etc. But other than that I don't use it.
The same goes with my iPhone - when I first got it all I did was play games on it. But then I grew tired of them, and I only use my phone for texting
and useful apps now (scientific calculator, maps, camera, etc).
The key to it all is moderation. And very few people these days are able to control their addictions. It's sad to see facebook friends who are
constantly online (and using it, not just having the tab open like me).
This is slightly off-topic, but have you noticed the amount of children that walk around stores playing their Nintendo DS's constantly? I hate seeing
that. Even when they're out in the world, they're missing the world. It's like a portable addiction. Our youth these days.. \=
