As Gawker reveals it, Kverneng and Catherine bantered humorously about the idea of him gaining 1 million Likes to gain her carnal affections.

As NBC news reports, 30-year-old Eric L. Ramsey knew his time was up, so he took out his cell phone and posted on his Facebook wall: "Well folkes [sic] im about to get shot. Peace"

Social networking is getting crazier and addictive. Why can't people have everything under their control?

The man died, after posting this. Am not looking on the fun side of SNS, but the dark side of how things can be addictive such that people use it even under the desperate times.

It's a subjective thinking or more of a culture adoption the examples you quoted is an example of culture adoption noting else. I would say people do use SNS for entertainment and for business purpose. And I'm well indeed with the concept as it allow us to be in link with friends and family no matter how far we are!

I used to be addicted to facebook when i was 15-16. But these days facebook is almost dead.. atleast for me.. No updates from my friends.. they're all busy with college life, while I'm sitting at home like a luser preparing for my second attempt at JEE/AIEEE. :|

Oh well.. Atleast i can browse this forum when i'm bored. :p

Well for me its hardly a addiction. I use it once in a day or two. but yes I have meet people everyday who updates their status 20 times a day and are always online. Now the status updates are mostly Copy Paste products which I really hate.

There are many kind of psychopaths in our society. One of those groups, with no social activity, favors this.

Is digit forum considered to be a social network? If so yes, its addictive.

PS: I used to post in facebook a lot, till it got overrun by stupids, idiots, retards and :_poop:, also posts that want you to spam a useless text to all threads else you'll die, or not find love bla bla bla.
