Humans are called social animals – may be this is the reason they spend so much time being social in the real life and now especially on the internet. And it is probably the main reason why social networking websites became so famous – just take the example of Facebook or Twitter or any other social media website today. Facebook however is the most successful social networking website of today. See these figures that are funny and astonishing at the same time: “World Population: 1. China 2. India 3. Facebook 4. United States 5. Indonesia 6. Brazil 7. Twitter”. After China, and India, if Facebook were a country, it would be the 3rd largest country of the world by population. And don’t forget to see the Twitter as being in the list too on the 7th number.
Facebook has more than 750 million active users, according to recent Facebook reports. Don’t you wonder that today we are living in a very fast paced world and we don’t have time for enjoyment, but we still use Facebook and spend much of our time on it? Yes, we must refer it as ‘addiction’ or more appropriately ‘Facebook-addiction’.
If we ask this question from different people, we’ll get different replies. Don’t wonder, it is because of various reasons. As it is fast paced life today, most of us have got no time to go out for hangouts, gatherings, picnics or such sort of things. Instead of this, they spend their vacant or sometime even busy time updating statuses, adding friends, talking to family, uploading pictures, and adding videos etc. Because you just need a PC or mobile or a notebook, and an internet connection and you can talk to whole world from your Facebook account.
Not only this, you stay up-to-date about current world affairs, latest movies, daily news, and many other updates. It is a whole world inside it; you just need to follow your favorite topics, friends and threads. If we summarize the reasons, we’ll get to know that we spend much time on Facebook because we don’t need to go anywhere, we can find all of our friends and family on it, we can read news, share videos, play games, meet new people, update statuses, and much more. Not only this, even if you go out and have hangouts, you feel your enjoyment incomplete without updating your status and uploading your pictures and videos to your Facebook account. Because you find a lot of fun all on a single place – you use it daily even if you don’t have much time.
