addicted to facebook?

How many hours a day do you spend on facebook or cafemom? I feel like I am totally addicted. I literally don't get anything done all day and I'm a crab, but it's hard to just shut myself off from it.

  • Facebook is one of the reasons I'm having problems in my marriage. It's a huge time sucker as is this. I try no more than 2 hours a day. I deactivate my Facebook acct for a while.

  • With Facebook, I log in less than once a week and even then it's only to check messages, accept an invite or post something specific. My time on Cafemom varies depending on what I have going on offline. It could be anywhere from no time at all to a few hours.

  • yes you can deactivate it and then reactivate it the only thing you lose is the pages you "liked" everything else is still there

  • I feel like I'm addicted as well. I'm at the computer on FB about 4 hours a day..while my BF is at work and then I also have the FB app on my phone and I constantly check it all day!! I have a lot of family in Texas and I'm in Wisconsin so it's my way of getting pictures to all of them of my family up here. Also a great way to stay in contact with friends that have moved away and such. Its a better addiction then say Cocaine or Heroin =)
