IPOD 3 years. Facebook added 100 Million users in.... 6 MONTHS There are more than 400
million active users... 50% of those users log on to the site at least once a day. More than 25 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) shared each month. Not only can you activate this website via computer.... Users have resourced to.... mobile phones There are over 100 million active users currently
accessing Facebook through their mobile devices. People that use Facebook on their phones are twice as active than non-mobile users About FacebookFounded in February 2004, Facebook is a social utility that helps people communicate more efficiently with their friends, family and coworkers. The company develops technologies that facilitate the sharing of information through the social graph, the digital mapping of people's real-world social connections. Anyone can sign up for Facebook and interact with the people they know in a trusted environment. But can Facebook be bad? Are the users becoming... ADDICTED? Are YOU
Addicted? THINK ABOUT... How many times a day do you get
on this site? Once... Twice... A DOZEN TIMES... OR EVEN
MORE ... Y will outnumber BABY BOOMERS What do you do when you first get on your computer ? FACEBOOK! What do you do when your trying to study for a test/ exam ? What do you do when your bored What do you do when you want to see what everyone did this weekend? What do you do when your life revolves around
Facebook and takes up all of your
free time ? REHAB! FAcebook has similar features as a drug.. Both always keep you coming back for more.. Is facebook the new crack? 5 clues you are ADDICTED to Facebook.
1.You lose sleep over Facebook " If you're staying up late at night because you're on Facebook, and you're tired the next day, Facebook may be a compulsion for you," 2.You spend more than an hour a day on Facebook "I can't imagine that anyone would need more than an hour a day on Facebook, and probably no one needs more than 30 minutes," 3.You become obsessed with old loves "One of my clients met up with an old boyfriend on Facebook. They started spending hours and hours into the night talking to each other on Facebook. She made some really inappropriate comments about how unhappy she was in her marriage, Her cousin saw the comments and told her parents, and the parents told the husband, and now they're in the process of getting divorced." 4. You ignore work in favor of Facebook "If you're not doing your job in order to sneak time on Facebook, you could have a real problem," 5.The thought of getting off Facebook leaves you in a cold sweat.
"Try going a day without Facebook. If you find it causes you a lot of stress and anxiety, you really need to get some help." If you fall into any of these 5 addictive indicators, it
may be time for some social media DETOX.... My prescription for you... NOt Drugs.. But to... go outside.. be active.. talk to someone (face to face) Remember what these look like? IS Facebook addiction disorder (FAD) a real thing? YES A growing body of research in the area of addiction suggests that Internet Addiction Disorder is becoming a real problem, it is a psycho-physiological disorder involving tolerance; withdrawal symptoms; affective disturbances; and interruption of social relationships. The most common one is Facebook Addiction Disorder (FAD). IT CAN BE DEFINED AS..... Not only are people seeking Facebook for
online interaction, things are getting more intense
with the constant need to come back and play games... FOr example.... FARMVILLE These games, make facebook
even more addicting. There sole
purpose is to keep you entertained
and make the objective so you
always have to come back
whether it be to feed your fish or harvest
your crops. You see if we step back from the virtual phenomenon of
Facebook, we can see that we are spending way too much time staring at a computer screen, devoting our lives to follow others, sometimes jeopardizing our grades or relationships....
To inform you and to make you realize Facebook may have alterior motives My MISSION: So next time you go to get on FACEBOOK DON'T Do something productive Here is a video to recap this presentation. THE END!
