By Kati

Everyone loves Facebook. It’s an excellent way to keep in touch, and to regain contact with people you never thought you’d talk to again...it’s been the main factor in a lot of reunions! And with the ability to share news, pictures and videos with family and friends at once, it can make juggling your social life a whole lot easier. It can be very addictive, though, so here are the top 8 signs that you’re addicted to Facebook...

Whenever you meet someone who hasn’t got a Facebook page, you start telling them all the benefits and insisting that they need one. And then setting it up for them. You could be employed by Facebook to sign people up!

If anyone gets more friends then you, then you trawl through their friends list, and add anyone and everyone. And then add people from poker, and Farmville, and Mafia Wars...who cares if you don’t know them, will never speak and live in different time zones?!

Facebook is far too addictive...I’ve got friends that disappear for weeks when they log on! But come on, how many of us don’t have Facebook open right now? Have you thought of a clue that shows you’re too addicted to Facebook? Please let me know! In the meantime, I’m off to feed my chickens...
