    Pinterest is replacing Facebook. The people REALLY in trouble are the ones who do Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.
    ETA: Not literally replacing FB - just that many people like it better - especially with all the changes FB has made latly.

    you know they say you can get addicted to this stuff it take up time and you really don't relize it that you are on so long. My husband's dughter was on it all day and half the night and she had kids which she never watched ot only due to the conputer but that is how she is I said to cut off the internet and if that don't work then unpklug the computer but Husband said no it can be as bad a as a drug I here but as for rehab I don't know never been hope I never am . OH they also say people with ADHD OR ADD are more prone to this. I am on face book but I play farmville things.
