Six Warning Signs You’re Addicted to Facebook

Researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway have developed a way to tell whether you’re becoming addicted to Facebook.

Check it out:

Women, introverts, and people who are disorganized are more likely to develop a problem.  The researchers also came up with six questions that will help determine whether you’re addicted.

Using a scale of one to five, rate how closely each question relates to you. If you give yourself a four or a five on at least four of the questions, you might be an addict.

#1.)  Do you spend a lot of time thinking about Facebook, or planning HOW you’ll use it?

#2.)  Do you feel an urge to use Facebook more and more?

#3.)  Do you use Facebook to forget about personal problems?

#4.)  Have you tried unsuccessfully to quit or cut down?

#5.)  Do you become restless or troubled if you’re prohibited from using Facebook?

#6.)  Has using Facebook had a negative impact on your job or studies?

I scored an 8. What was your number? Let me know in the…ummmm Facebook widget below!
