Myspace, Facebook, Twitter...
Facebook has become an indispensable way to find old friends, schedule events, play games and even send virtual gifts. But if you’re doing more living online than off, it might be time to reassess. Many students are now seeing Facebook more as an addiction than a networking tool, and psychologists are starting to agree. Are personal relationships taking a backseat to Facebook? Do you think about Facebook even when you’re offline? Do you use Facebook to escape problems or homework? Do you stay on Facebook longer than intended? Have you ever concealed Facebook use? There is hope for this though the key may be as simple as diagnosing your triggers and changing your habits. If you spend more time than you intended on social networks then you may want to find out how we can help you.
" Myspace took over my life, I was on it everyday for at least 6 hours. I had 1,500 friends, and almost 300 comments on every picture I had. Myspace was my drug."
