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?
