Have you ever decided to take a break from life to jump on Facebook (or any social network) for a minute and the next thing you knew a few hours had passed?
Unless you have the self discipline of a saint, it has probably happened to you a
time or two errr… a few thousand times. (grin)
Is that a problem? Well, I think that depends on us as individuals.
If social networks are keeping you from getting your work done or interfering with family time, yeah, you might have a problem. You may want to consider setting a timer to alert you when you have reached a reasonable amount of time.
If social networks are just keeping you from curling up on the couch and watching a movie though, why worry about it? Just enjoy that it is simply another way of interacting with people and having some fun.
So let me ask you this…
Do social networks zap your time?
What ways have you found to keep it all in balance.
I have to admit that I am pretty pleased that social networking is part of my job! 🙂
