      John Chow Dot Com Addiction is far better then Facebook & Twitter. At least we are learning something from john. I rather make money then spend time in Facebook and Twitter but that’s just me.

    Love your blog! Facebook is a really cool thing to connect with friends you haven’t seen or spoken to in years. I believe for some it’s way more than that. I have seen personally those that live in a fantasy world on facebook living out a life that doesn’t really exist. They post about things they have, money they make and how great they’re doing when in real life they’re struggling and just putting on a show for all of their “friends”. I do believe some people are as or more addicted to facebook than drugs or alcohol. And thankfully there are people out there that recognize this addiction and help.
    Thanks,
    John

    I’m spending more than 4 hours a day on Facebook, but I do not have Facebook Addiction Disorder!

  5. Facebook is a great way to catch up with old friends and for some it supplies a medium to live vicariously through others. Today, I see Facebook as a great way to market myself and discover new information by simply asking my “friends” their opinions. The question I have; is Facebook the new fad that will drizzle away in years to come? Remember when Yahoo! and Yahoo! chat forums were the cats meow or prior to Yahoo! AOL?
