Study: Facebook more addictive than tobacco
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- If you're constantly checking your Facebook page, a new study shows you're not alone.
Researchers say Facebook and Twitter are more addictive than tobacco and alcohol.
A survey of 250 people found that sleep and sex were the two things people most longed for during the day.
But the hardest to resist was the urge to keep on top of social networks.
In contrast, alcohol and tobacco prompted much lower levels of desire, despite their reputation for being addictive.
