This post is for those of my friends and colleagues who are on Facebook most of the time — it’s my virtual lone intervention. I’m not talking about those of you who use it a couple times a week, or even once a day: I’m addressing those of you who keep it open at all times in your workspace (and playspace), updating what’s going on in your life minute-by-minute and using Facebook exclusively in lieu of actual conversation / encounters with friends and loved ones.
Read this 2/6/2012 post please: “Facebook With Care: Social Networking Site Can Hurt Self-Esteem,” by Stephanie Pappas at the LiveScience site.

I’m not suggesting (and neither is the article) that Facebook itself is bad for you, just that one’s use of it should be judicious.
