I'm really glad I found this post.

I'm 24 years old and i've been using the the net since 2000. I've basically seen everything, from the first time they introduced voice chat on yahoo, to watching danny way skate over the great wall of china live, to the first video on youtube, to all the massive changes i've seen on myspace then it died.

It really is a real bad addiction which is hard to break apart from. Sometimes I think it's worse then drugs. I remember I was the first person at my school with the net on my phone which was back in 2004 and I was using one of the first colored screen nokias!

I don't even know what gain I get from using the net so much, but I do agree with social networking, is to "be liked" and it's a confidence booster.

From using the net 6+ hours a day, for 11 years, i'm surprised i'm not over weight, but i've developed insomnia!

I'm not using the net as much as I use to, but I believe our generation should change.

"Happiness in teenage life is based on social status and events" - how very sad. What happened to basing one's happiness on volunteering, helping others, hiking a mountain, doing well in school?

My daughter is into Facebook. She likes to get in touch with her friends through Facebook. But I make sure that Facebook won't own her. So I set up some boundaries to make sure she won't neglect her studies
