Take the test-Are you a Facebook Addict?


Some Signs that you are a Facebook addict!  

CNN says the site’s not the problem, the disconnection from real life is. 

If you…….

1. You lose sleep over Facebook

“If you’re staying up late at night because you’re on Facebook, and you’re tired the next day, Facebook may be a compulsion for you,” Lipari said. “You shouldn’t be neglecting yourself because of Facebook.”

2. You spend more than an hour a day on Facebook

Paula Pile, says it’s hard to pinpoint exactly how much is too much time to be spending on social networking. Pile is a therapist specializing in individual, group and couple therapy.

“I can’t imagine that anyone would need more than an hour a day on Facebook, and probably no one needs more than 30 minutes,” she said.

3. You become obsessed with old boyfriends or girlfriends. 

Reconnecting with old friends is one of the great attractions of Facebook, and there’s nothing necessarily wrong with “friending” an old boyfriend or girlfriend.  Watch where it leads however.  Stalking is not cool for anyone involved. 

4. You ignore schoolwork in favor of Facebook.

5. The thought of getting off Facebook leaves you in a cold sweat, you need Facebook detox!

The Rock Star Stories by Alison Sikes

Student journalists from all over South Florida were given the chance of a lifetime to interview one of the world’s biggest bands, Fall Out Boy. In a press conference held by The Rock Star Stories at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater, bassist Pete Wentz and singer Patrick Stump answered questions from over 50 students. Despite being Billboard Top 40 and MTV favorites, it seems that fame has not gotten to their heads. The duo was ready and willing to answer any question on topics such as fatherhood and the future of Fall Out Boy. Following the interview, pop punk band All Time Low came to the press conference. Known for their hilarious personas, this quartet did not disappoint with their answers. When asked how the band formed, front man Alex Gaskarth responded “We met at a comic book convention.” It is safe to say the press conference was a great success.
