This is true, it can be addictive. I recall reading once about social networks and how they are addictive like cigarettes and could be worse; it not only affects health but also mentality of the addict. Not going to that extreme and will talk about the games’ applications of Facebook for now.
I, for a start, am a Facebook user, not only I follow my friends and post things, I also play. Like any addiction, it started to fill up some of the free time that I once had, and things developed as I got from one level to another that I felt like helpless and couldn’t control it. I thought closing Facebook for a while and being away from the games would help me, well I was able to stay away for a week from Facebook and anything related to it, then I thought it was safe to go back. I was wrong, so wrong. The moment I got back, I was back in the lope of games and levels and so on. It is now consuming my time, helping me to run away from tasks and reality, something I don’t want.
These days I somehow limited the games I’m playing to a group, mostly Angry Bird and Sims…for me those two are good to spend time on, I mean spare time if you got any.
YES I am an adult, and NO I’m not complaining or anything, I’m merely stating a situation that I know is not rare, thankfully.
Have you been there, through this addiction? Why not share your experience and advice?
