Hello, my name is Kylie and I’m a Facebookoholic …
And you know what? That’s perfectly fine with me!
Yes, I freely admit the first thing I do before getting out of bed is … check Facebook. While I’m watching TV, I’m on my phone … checking Facebook. And when I’m working, there is a browser window open permanently so I can … check Facebook.
I may also be guilty of having my mobile handy in restaurants if I need to … check Facebook and post the obligatory “what am I having for dinner” photo.
I confess, I LOVE Facebook.
So why is hating on Facebook the new cool?
I have friends undergoing Facebook detoxes and technology free weekends. Then there’s those scaling back their usage because of privacy concerns or cancelling your account entirely because it’s the “hipster” thing to do.
Even businesses are whinging about a deliberate decrease in engagement as part of a sinister plot by Facebook to push businesses toward advertising.
Well yes and I actually have no problems with that … but let’s save that one for another post.
The things is, while the number of anti-Facebook hipsters continue to grow, my usage has only increased.
I am a Facebook addict and I’m proud of it!
So I wanted to share with you why I think Facebook so awesome.
