Women Are Facebook Addicts

A study published by Mashable and conducted by Oxygen Media with Lightspeed Research found one-third of women ages 18 to 34 check Facebook first thing in the morning, even before brushing their teeth or going to the bathroom. The survey also found that 26 percent of women 18 to 34 get up in the middle of the night to read text messages and 37 percent of that group say they have fallen asleep with a PDA in their hands.

Here's where things get SCAREY :::

In terms of privacy, the Oxygen survey found that women aren’t too concerned about being tracked at any given time. Case in point:
Facebook Freaks ::: DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
—56 percent of Twitter users surveyed are fine with letting their followers know their current location
—53 percent post personal problems they are having at the moment.
—85 percent of women think its okay to post photos of a “girls or guys night out.”
—79 percent see no reason to post photos with kissing in them.
—73 percent have no problem with someone posting images of a bachelorette party.

This post about FACEBOOK PRIVACY SETTINGS is a bit dated, but it can serve as a guideline to getting into your facebook over the weekend and doing a little tidying/organizing! It might even save your life!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
