    well said shabbu, we need to manage time well and mostly in service of our goals on social networking sites like Facebook and also on the recently launched, much touted and speculated Google Plus. Spending a lot of time online/alone makes most of us to impulsively connect to people on social networking sites or do online communication mainly to serve the purpose of socialization that we feel missing somehow. Using it in limit is okay but exceeding the limits and spending whole of the time off-work on social sites can stunt human social development and real-life communications. Use it or you’ll lose it, but use it wisely, that’s what has to be learned. Any productivity tips from your side, on how you’re able to manage your time on Facebook are very welcome and appreciated.

  3. As teens become more and more addicted to texting, social networking etc … you’re finding their real social interaction is gone.

    Not sure if it’s the advancement of technology or the dissolution of parenting.

    The same condition is here in India also. People should care when their children works on computers and parents should set a time limit for the use of Facebook..
