I am addicted to it and was wondering who of you also have it.

I've been trying to keep away from this but I fear sometime in the future I'll be forced to go on this by the dark site anyway. I'm on LinkedIn though.

I'm on both Facebook (although I wouldn't say I'm addicted) and LinkedIn which I've only recently joined.

On a serious note: Facebook is big, as in: it has a major significance, which will only increase for a long time to come. I expect it to become a political issue one day, if that is not the case already.

The reason I say I'm addicted is because it is the main medium for me to keep in touch with friends I made in Finland. But as a cultural geographer I'm fascinated by this 'global village'-phenomenon. One has to use it with care, though! Personal relations can derail because of Facebook, especially if you give too much weight to what happens on that site.

I use it increasingly less and less. Frankly keeping up to date with your privacy settings is a chore in itself as well as the fact that Facebook apparently 'owns' your photos you put on there.

I also find facebook useful to keep up with friends I don't see very of often. The photo issue is annoying though.

LinkedIn I am finding useful for job leads, definitely not a site just for chatting on.

I'm on it but i can't say i've ever been addicted to it by spending hours and hours on it. It is good in a sense of keeping in touch with people in between being able to catch up with them (espeically when they are in another country) but it seems to me some people spend way to much time on it posting stupid updates every half an hour instead of going out and getting a life and posting something useful once in a while.
