“Are you sure you’re not?”
“I'm not a Facebook addict! Just following trends!”
“But why do you constantly update your status, er? Then you are!”
"Am not!"

Giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. It's Facebook.

Facebook is a social utility network which connects people with their family and friends from around the globe.

As Facebook conquered the web, it reaches about more than 350 million active users. Indeed a record breaker! Hitting Friendster’s 115 million users worldwide and which further decreases its number of visits but partially had stopped since the new launched interface.

Why Facebook edging out Friendster? Amongst factors reflecting the social media competition is the ease of use of the web application (friendly user interface), web design, interactive communication tools and having mesmerized by thousands of flash games which everyone really seems to be addicted to. Right!

Why everyone seems to feel like a star or a superstar on Facebook? You can post everything! From the status updates through notes, snippets, blog and an instant comment from a friend. Tada you're a star and that is why!

The following are signs to let you know if you are a Facebook addict:

1. You converse friends with a biz. “#omg he/she had an affair with! is he/she the #ex of #bg?”
2. You update your status 20 times and more a day.
3. You add 30 friends a day as if you know them well but in fact you're not. You go outta and find a way to add them on your list.
