10 Deadly FAD Symptoms

10 Deadly FAD Symptoms
By Rakesh Raman

Beware of FAD pandemic. It can be more perilous than your Swine Flu. Are you suffering from FAD? Yes, if you show these symptoms:

1. You start thinking more about your stay on Facebook than your job, your food, your health, your relations, and even your lovely pet.

2. You are available on Facebook chat even when you’re sleeping.

3. You start using alien words and symbols on your Facebook posts – like hehehe, hahaha, wow. lol, ), !!!!!!!!!!, …….., @, etc.

4. You keep waiting for a couple of your buddies to say somethin’ on everythin’ you post on your Facebook wall.

5. You thank all for the good wishes on your birthday even when you’ve received none.

6. You want to make even the most private things public on Facebook – like the traveling plan of your spouse, your kissing habits, your sex scores based on some weird app, and even the headache of your old cat.

7. You spend more time playing Facebook games than even your teenaged son in the playground.

8. You write useless comments on others’ posts and expect others to reciprocate.

9. You start changing your own Facebook pictures and adding more in which “actually” none is interested. It’s just to artificially draw others’ gaze.

10. You go away from Facebook only to come back again instantly.

But what’s FAD? It’s “Facebook Addiction Disorder.” Today, it’s believed, nearly 400 million people across the world are suffering from it and are at various stages of the disorder. In the last stage, they start spending more time on Facebook than on anything else. They stop living in the real world and only exist on Facebook.

If you’re a victim of FAD, consult your “virtual health specialist” now.

    I really love Facebook. It seemed like it would be a great place to try some advertising since just about everyone uses it. I’ve been marketing on Adwords for years, so I thought I knew what I was doing. Well I was dead wrong. I blew $200 fast advertising on FB. I had kind of given the thought up but I saw a thread about this Facebook ads guide on the Warrior forum. Looks interesting but I’m wondering if you have had any luck with it? Here’s a link to it. Thinking about giving it a try to see if I was really doing something completely wrong with Facebook before or not. Help?
