Am I Addicted To Facebook?

Did you know that 40% of Americans use Facebook? Well at least that is what I found when I looked it up. I started using it a few years ago and have been using it daily since that time. I do love Facebook and how easy it is to keep in touch with all my friends and family. I have gotten to know some great people through Facebook because many of us turned to it after the Cricut Messageboard started going down the tubes. While I love it I am wondering if I spend too much time booking the face!

I have decided to take a hiatus from Facebook and have deactivated my account temporarily to see how much time I waste with Facebook. I am also wondering if I am going to start suffering delirium tremors and break out in sweats after a period of time of not updating the newsfeed to check and see what all my friends are doing.

How long this will last I don't know because I am already wondering about my friends and what they are up to, if anyone had anything exciting and good happen today or they  have made plans for the weekend.

Crap...I think the withdrawal has already started!


  1. Missing you and your humor already on FB .... hope to see you back soon! :-)

  2. I too miss everyone on the Cricut message board and wondered if maybe they were on Facebook but I deactivated my account a few years ago because I did find out I was wasting to much time there. I understand your problem from both ways !

  3. I don't know if you are going through withdrawals or not ... but I am. In fact, my FB page keeps chanting ... WHERE'S SHIRLEY ... WHERE'S SHIRLEY. I know we all need a break once in a while, but I hope your FB "vacation" doesn't last too long. You are missed my many (including Meeeeeeee)! Whatever you are doing in the meantime, I hope you are enjoying yourself and taking a little time to just relax.


  4. Since your deactivation my FB newsfeed has had very little activity. Of course you spend too much time on FB. We all do!

  5. I really don't care if I am addicted or not really. But I don't feel I HAVE to be on FB.
    It does give me something to do when I am sitting here alone.
    I will be ever so grateful for you starting the FB page for the Old Cricut Community.
    I hope you feel you are not addicted and come back soon as I love reading all your stories!! You truly keep me entertained.
