This is a pretty cool program that would help someone like me that can't be online without having the Facebook window open. The program helps block distracting computer programs, including Facebook.

Social Network Addiction - A disorder on the rise | Brain Blogger | Addiction to Social Media | Scoop.it

Social networking had changed the ways we interact with one another enormously ! The amount of time we spend on facebook a day is sickening so of that time, how much of that is devoted to talking to people on there that we wouldn't in person. And whats really sad is when we are actually with our friends and people we talk to, is the amount of time we spend going on Facebook on our phones. Even at social gathering with our families we do this, it is terrible.

Having never been addicted to alcohol or tobacco, I don't really have anything to compare Facebook Addiction to. However, as a HUGE caffeine (Diet Coke) addict, I do understand the pull of satisfying an addiction. Interesting that something that is so young relatively has had such a huge impact on society as a whole.
