SNS Profiles – a sense of Self Worth:

SNS Profiles – a sense of Self Worth Humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow developed a theory that humans have three basic needs. One of these was the need for love, affection and belongingness. Humans need a sense of self-worth. A Facebook profile (or similar others) has become the perfect tool for people to let the world know all about their interests, their thoughts and their life.

How to know you are addicted:

How to know you are addicted When you type the first alphabet the url of the sns pops out. (if caching is enabled). The first website you hit into is not your email, but facebook , twitter or myspace . If you have started stalking - unwanted attention by individuals (and sometimes groups of people) to others. Friend updated his status. Lets see who commented. You keep the cell phone in your reach. You have Internet connection at your home, but your mobile GPRS data charges are increasing.

How to manage and use it.:

How to manage and use it. No strict rules as such. You can block the site Application within an organization But its not practical always (it also aids in communication) Limit bandwidth usage. But what to do for home use? I am the master of my own machine – so be self conscious. Apply security settings and time of day for your children when they use the computers.

Some way outs:

Some way outs Google chrome extension Chrome Nanny. With this extension you can specify the time of day you want to block a website and the days of a week you want to block it. You can also pinpoint the maximum time you want to spend on the website in a day in the hours it is not blocked. This makes it good so that you are reminded that you spent say 30 minutes on Facebook today and its enough for today.

Some way outs:

Some way outs Firefox has a similar extension, Leech block that works in a similar manner. If you try to access blocked site in the given time or after you crossed the time limit for the day it shows you a white page with some text on the homepage of the site you are looking for. Also look into , which also helps you restrict the usage after the specified minutes.
