PS: Yes, we realize that it may seem somewhat hypocritical to put a "Like" button on this article!

But, TechAddiction has never been about banning technology or preaching that people should not use the internet, play video games, or use Facebook. They just need to be used responsibly.

Facebook is a great way to share information and can be quite enjoyable and harmless when used in moderation, hence we ultimately decided to include a "Like" button...sound reasonable?
