People joke about Facebook addiction but some Norwegian researchers say it actually exists and they've come up with a test.
According to the Bergen Facebook Addiction Scale there are six warning signs and if you answer yes to four or more you're probably addicted.
"The use of Facebook has increased rapidly. We are dealing with a subdivision of Internet addiction connected to social media," said Cecilie Schou Andreassen, a doctor of psychology at the University of Bergen. "It occurs more regularly among younger than older users. We have also found that people who are anxious and socially insecure use Facebook more than those with lower scores on those traits, probably because those who are anxious find it easier to communicate via social media than face-to-face"
So are you an addict?
