facebook-addiction-disorder-150x150

Approximately 350million people are suffering from Facebook Addiction Disorder (FAD). It is a term introduced by US psychologists describing people who are diagnosed with addiction to Facebook and their life activities are dominated by non-controllable “distractions” from Facebook. Howard-Payne, a psychology lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand, said “Addictive use of the Internet is a new phenomenon which many practitioners are unaware of and, subsequently, unprepared to treat. Use of Facebook is often a legitimate way of social networking, so abstinence may not be seen as a practical intervention thus it is recommended that there be moderation and controlled use.”

What are your views on Facebook Addiction Disorder? Do you think it is something real or just simply FAD? Make your comment below.
