    Facebook is good for catching up with news, sharing pictures etc.. But I feel it uses up too much time, especially in the evening.

      Does it use up too much of your time or do you give it away?

        The more important question is are you getting addicted to it? There is something addicting about keyboarding and posting messages for people to read. People who might be impressed or interested... all those virtual people… who mostly just exist in your imagination. It the same in the casual conversation… you speak to someone thinking that person will want to hear your thoughts. They usually just want someone to hear their thoughts. Its all in your mind. Do it for the creativity of it. Thats why I keyboard here; to exercise my creativity… within the HP boundaries, or you get banned. Can you imagine if there were no boundaries?

        There are far better games out there than Facebook's terrible buggy pay-to-win cow-clickers.

        Like, you know, the actual physical Scrabble.

          I don't pay to play.

          I call real life scrabble bored-scrabble cause it's slow moving and boring.

    Yes.  It's too easy of a distraction.  Quit once, for a few months but now I feel the need for a distraction again...and because my English TA requires a Twitter account with weekly postings.  hmm  I decided to check FB and what do ya know?  There I went again....  hmm
