 Women addicted to Facebook


Young women are becoming increasingly addicted and dependent upon social networks according to a study conducted by Oxygen Media and Lightspeed Research.

The study polled the habits of 1,605 adults using social media between May and June 2010 in an effort to chart behavioural trends.

Twenty-one per cent of women aged between 18 to 34 check Facebook in the middle of the night, while 42 per cent of the same group think it is fine to post drunken photos of themselves onto the social network. Seventy-nine per cent are also happy to be seen kissing in photographs posted on Facebook. ...

Young women need to get wise because
employers know to check with social-
networking sites before deciding on
candidates for a job position!!

 Re: Women addicted to Facebook

It is not only FB, it is the Blackberry and cell phone use.
This addiction is not limited to females ages 18-34 years old.

I know of one 50 YO female who is constantly texting. checking emails on her Blackberry. When she is with people she is not 'with them'. She is constantly checking her blackberry and doing who knows what. This situation is so bad it interferes in her relationships with people.

People will misuse the cell phone while on the job - talk when they should be working, charging the employer for their socializing...a modern form of purloining.

Annoying...

 Re:

Its definitely not limited to females, I use to have a facebook page but got rid of it simply because I spent to much time on it in general and not enough time in the Word of God.

The two reasons I refuse to touch social networking sites, myself.

Which is exactly why I'm going back to my land line when my cell phone contract runs out next June. I humbly share and thank the Lord that I've been talking for about a year of getting rid of my digital cable box and the Lord finally led me to do it... having no money helped but the Lord always has a way of bringing us to where we need to go, doesn't He? Getting rid of that has helped me be determined to go back to a landline. I hope this has encouraged someone else to get rid of something technical that they might be a slave to!

God bless,

 Re:

I can see some using FB for the glory of God too :o) But, if some are led by God's Spirit not to use FB then follow this prompting. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
