I'm on Facebook (facebook.com/bruceinthemorningshow) and Twitter (@bruceitmorning).  A LOT!  Some might say I'm addicted, but it's part of my job!  That's the excuse I'm going with anyway.

Researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway have developed a way to tell whether you're becoming addicted to Facebook.  Women, introverts, and people who are disorganized are more likely to develop a problem.  The researchers also came up with six questions that will help determine whether you're addicted.

Using a scale of one to five, rate how closely each question relates to you.  If you give yourself a four or a five on at least four of the questions, you might be an addict.

#1.)  Do you spend a lot of time thinking about Facebook, or planning HOW you'll use it?

Me: 4.  But it IS for work. Honest.

#2.)  Do you feel an urge to use Facebook more and more?

Me: 4 Again, same reason

#3.)  Do you use Facebook to forget about personal problems?

Me: 1

#4.)  Have you tried unsuccessfully to quit or cut down?

Me: 1.  I haven't tried.

#5.)  Do you become restless or troubled if you're prohibited from using Facebook?

Me: 4  I get extremely anxious when Facebook messes up.  I like to be able to do my job.

#6.)  Has using Facebook had a negative impact on your job or studies?

Me: 1.  Although my boss may say otherwise. But what does he know?

 

See?  I knew I wasn't an addict.  How about you?  Take the quiz and give us your score!

P.S. True addicts can justify anything.  Just sayin'.
