Rising Facebook addiction

FACEBOOK has a staggering number of subscribers. Currently the number is 1.79 billion.  It is simply mind-boggling!  We see many of the present generation are facebook addicts and other social media.  Now researchers use "facebook addiction" to describe people who have an ardent desire to spend an inappropriate amount of time on facebook. I know that whenever some people wake up in the middle of the night they check their facebook.  When we spend unhealthy amount of time on the net, we miss much of the fun and activities in the real life situation.

 What is the use of having 500 "friends" and their likes and comments when there is no real bonding?  We can interact with many people and keep connected but I am not ready to term them friend as friendship has different connotations. It has a deep meaning. The virtual world should not keep us away from the real world. The virtual world should help us develop our life and not the other way round.  We should always remember we need to strike a balance in our life and that excess of anything is bad.
