I swear, I’m not addicted to Facebook. It has become a reflex where I type an f into the address bar on Google Chrome and find myself staring at the blue and white pages that is Facebook. Sometimes I look at it just wondering why on earth I am there, most of the time there’s nothing exciting on it anyway. In the past 5 years, it has become such a frequent part of my life that it has become like a reflex every time a browser window is opened. Sometimes, I even open it when I already have a tab of it open elsewhere.
Who am I kidding? It is an addiction. In addition, now with all the strange new features I seem to be visiting it even more frequently. Whether it is because I am slightly OCD and need to filter out my new “timeline profile”, or to keep up with the twitter-like feed thing, I seem to be on it far more than I’d like to be. I mean, how else would I keep up with the people who I hardly ever talk to liking things constantly? That must be part of their evil plan.
I’m all for the evolution and updating of Facebook, we can’t stop it. We’ll complain every update but no matter what, we can’t seem to leave it.
Damn you Facebook, get out of my fingers.
