Comment of the Day: Placing Blame for Facebook Addiction
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We wrote about the recent spate of articles on people who are "addicted" to Facebook or have otherwise gotten burned by social-media sites.

I think not being on Facebook is the new not watching television. People do it with the idea that removing themselves from something popular makes them somehow better than people who don't. Facebook isn't all Farmville, Mafia Wars and stalking. It allows me to keep in touch with family and friends across the country. I say use Facebook wisely and reap the rewards!
