I strongly disagree. Defending FB for having an addictive product is a bit like defending Phillip Morris for having an addictive product.

FB was designed to be addictive. Here are those exact words from a founder and first FB president.

If he feels the need to blow the whistle then I think it is worth a listen.

Well, my point was that fb didn't make the internet addictive. I'm sure that AOL and Myspace were also designed to make users come back. I also see people taking dozens of selfies during the day, and then posting them on fb. Others take pictures of their dinners, or where they happen to be on the map. I don't see the point, but I'm sure that fb is only the vehicle.

I have a fb account, and I check it when I'm at the computer. I don't really post that much on it. I check my Youtube account just as much. However, I would miss Youtube more than fb if they disappeared. I think if fb were gone, something else would take its place because it serves a function.

Well FB deliberately makes selfies addictive by holding back the number of likes to release them in big chunks like a slot machine therefore creating an endorphin rush. This is just one of many tools they use to get people hooked and keep them from closing their accounts, for example.

Yes, a lot of people have accounts they rarely use but why? Because it is designed to create a need in your life and some get addicted to that need.

Wow! Even FOX news is raising the question as to whether the rise in social media is creating the rise in teen suicide rate.

Yes, as strange as it is Tucker Carlson put it best when he said he enjoyed his life before facebook.

Funny how not using FB makes you a rebel or people think you don't how to use it or you have no life. LOL!

I used it for 10 years and I don't want it.

I think a lot of us have been naturally using it less. Maybe the addiction has worn off a little bit.

The posts my friends post are pretty boring! RSF is more entertaining much of the time!

"Black Mirror" Nosedive (2016), http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5497778/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1:
Black Mirror: Nose dive A woman who lives in a world where most people are completely overwhelmed by the madness of being popular and important in social reding earns an invitation from her best childhood friend to her marriage, but certain unexpected occassions will try to stop her from reaching In her destiny, had she been able to attend the wedding?

Excerpt from What psychology actually says about the tragically social-media obsessed society in 'Black Mirror', http://www.businessinsider.com/psycholo ... ia-2016-10:
Study after study has found that when we engage with social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, we may feel a temporary boost from likes or favorites, but there's absolutely no link between social media use and long-term happiness. Some research suggests the opposite, in fact: that social media use is linked with an increase in negative feelings. A January study of 1,787 young US adults sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, for example, found a "strong and significant association between social media use and depression." Participants' depression levels, the researchers found, increased alongside the total amount of time spent using social media and the number of weekly visits to social media platforms.

Nevertheless, driven by the hedonic treadmill, we keep using it. We "check" Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as if there's something real there for us to find there. But all we ever get is a "like" or a "fave." And a swipe or a scroll is all it takes to wipe them away.
