Are you obsessed with Facebook?

Facebook has transformed itself from a diversion into the central hub around which we organize our social lives. There are half a billion people on earth on Facebook, which amounts to 1 in every 13 people alive; in the U.S., a whopping 72% of the internet-connected audience has a profile. But these numbers fail to capture the role that Facebook actually plays in many people’s lives. Among 18-34-year-olds, 48% check Facebook right when they wake up. Over New Year’s weekend, 750 million photos were uploaded. Every 20 minutes, 10 million comments are made, and 2.7 million messages are sent.

In other words, not only are we “Facebook obsessed,” but for a growing portion of the world, if an event or thought or relationship isn’t documented or shared somehow on Facebook, it’s like it never happened at all.
