Are you a Facebook addict?
I think I've started to become one.
Hmm...I wonder how it happened, in just around 3 months, I've become addicted to this social networking site. To think that for the longest time, I didn't want to create an account! Only to my sister-in-law's non-stop prodding that I finally gave in. I said, oh, what the heck, just create an account, and let it be. But, lo and behold, much as I don't want to admit it, I am now officially hooked!
I actually don't use it to upload my photos (I like Multiply better in terms of photo-sharing), more so neither for Mafia Wars, nor for FarmVille, Farm Town, or whatever form of farming, nor for any other application whatsoever (no offense to those who enjoy these games...they might be really fun, I just haven't started learning them yet... I'm afraid I might get more addicted to Facebook if I try any of these games.. LOL :) ). I mostly log on to it to check out on my friends' status. I was initially overwhelmed knowing that I have a lot of friends already in Facebook, from my long-lost childhood friends, to my old neighbors, to my high school classmates, to relatives I haven't seen for the longest time, to my former teachers and professors, and the list goes on and on. The "chismosa" in me got me spending hours just looking at what's going on in other people's lives.
I don't know how to describe it. Maybe Facebook just has a certain magic that creates the illusion that we are never alone, that each one of us is connected in one way or another. As they say, we are all just six degrees of separation apart. Who knows, maybe you who are reading this right now, might just be my second cousin's husband's high school teacher's neighbor's friend. He..he.. ;)
