Facebook Is As Addicting As Cigarettes and Chocolate
Are you addicted to Facebook? If you are, you're not the only one. A new study says that the social media platform is as addicting as chocolate and cigarettes!!!
According to the study that I was reading last night, when people see the logo of Facebook they instantly crave it. Yes, like when you crave things like chocolate, food, etc.
Like any addiction, if you're too invested into Facebook it can actually affect you social life. And by that I mean life away from the computer.
I can't help but ask, "Why are we so addicted to Facebook?" Is it because we're so interested in other people's life or are we just that "nosey?"
A few months ago I read that Facebook is such a distraction that researchers have blamed the social media platform for the decline in interest in daytime television. Yes, some studies suggest that fewer people are watching television due to Facebook.
Whatever the case may be, we all LOVE Facebook, but lets not let it distract from the more important things in life.
