re: Facebook Addiction: A Shocking Cure

Internet addiction and technology overload are real and growing issues. There is a great site called The Unplug Series which aims to help technology addicts, geeks and the overly wired world remember how to 'really' connect. I found their new study on "Taking Timeout from Technology" particularly interesting and relevant to this http://www.unplugseries.com/the-taking-timeout-from-technology-survey-2013

re: Facebook Addiction: A Shocking Cure
www.go4break.com is launched to cure
Facebook addiction. Facebook deactivation is not enough, some more deterrent is
needed.

This works
really well for people who are wasting time on Facebook.

Facebook is
not bad if used in moderation. No software to download or install.

re: Facebook Addiction: A Shocking Cure
This is true! Lately, Twitter has been more of an addiction than Facebook, but that is probably because I find relevant articles and funny updates on Twitter from a select group of people I follow. Usually, with Facebook, you get mindless posts from your "friends."

Yes but if it's not Facebook, it's Reddit, the twitter, then reading trashy Gawker articles. There's no end in sight!

Mobile device makers should have a "Vibrate Annoyingly" timer that can be set to deter device use after a certain period of time.

I would love to try this method to help me focus on my master's thesis that I spend my weekends completing, but I have a conundrum: My thesis is based on research conducted on Facebook.

As an IT administrative tool, the ability to send a shock to employees on Facebook could be the enterprise product of the year.

I'm guilty of this, and need a good zap once in awhile. Everything is too easy to check with smartphones. It's not just Facebook, but also Instagram, email, Twitter etc.

Step. Away. From the phone.

Like when smokers become addicted to nicotine gum.
