Are you a Facebookaholic?

By Chris - 03-02-2012 Rating:
Facebook is in the process of becoming a publicly listed company, and is estimated to be worth £100 BILLION! As an internet company, only Google can compete with that sort of power. And there is no doubt that since Facebook came into existence as a small start up at Harvard University in 2004, it has invaded every part of our lives!

Having destroyed it's competitors, such as the uncool Bebo or Myspace, Facebook now appears to have just under a billion active profiles worldwide, and around 50% of the population in the USA and the UK use it. There is no doubt that it has changed the way we interact with each other, whether it's organising events, sharing photos and ideas, or just keeping in touch with old friends.

And I don't know about you, but I have to confess that I'm definitely something of a Facebookaholic... It's so easy to while away the day, 'stalking' your friends, and their friends, and their friends' friends... And I know (I hope!!) I'm not alone in this. In fact, The Priory has said that around 1 in 10 users are in danger of being officially 'addicted'! The fantastic book Help I'm A Face-Book-Aholic has all the info you need to help you with your addiction, whether it's the history, the inside story, the way we use it and the way that it's taking over our lives!
