Facebook as Addictive as Cigarettes? [POLL]

Do you feel like you’re addicted to social media? Just can’t get enough? A new study came out and says that Facebook is just as addictive as nicotine. Seriously?

According to The Sun the study from Amsterdam’s Vrije University, studied 200 people and their reactions to seeing Facebook’s “f” logo. People who spent more time on social media actually craved more Facebook when they saw the “f” and it was almost impossible for Facebook regulars to not log on.

Wow, I hate to say it. I mean I do love keeping up with friends and family on Facebook but funny thing is, last weekend when my husband and I were out of town I almost totally forgot about Facebook. I’d see my husband grab his phone and say “Gotta check in.” and I’d say, “Oh, okay…tag me.” That way I didn’t have to mess with it. Alright so maybe it not an addiction thing for me just laziness. Yeah, that sounds about right. 😉
