If you’re not sure whether you are addicted to Facebook or you just love the social media, here are seven warning signs that you (or someone you know) may be addicted to Facebook.
Spending Excessive Time on Facebook
Spending excessive time on Facebook is a clear red flag. How much time is excessive? If you spend more than two hours in a row or three hours daily with your nose buried in the Facebook website, you are probably addicted.
Compulsive Profile Dressing
You should be doing your homework or working on that document your boss wants tomorrow or playing with your children, but instead you compulsively sign on to Facebook so you can change your profile picture for the third time this week. Bam. You’re addicted.
You feel anxious, nervous, or guilty if you don’t update your Facebook status at least three or four times a day. Did you know that some people go days without updating their status? Thought not.
You take your phone into the bathroom so you can update your status on the john. That’s just disgusting. You’re addicted, and you need to do something about it pronto.
You have more than 600 Facebook friends, but you fret over whether you have enough—and you’ve never actually met even half of those “friends.”
Chances are you are addicted, but this is not uncommon nowadays. See if you can go through and delete the people you have no clue who they are. If you can’t, you’re probably addicted.
