How many times do you check your phone for Facebook updates in a day? This question might appear trifling but the answer to it is countless. Indeed, people on an average spend at least ten minutes each time they tap the Facebook icon on their phone before realizing what they were doing before the act.

There are millions of FB users who enjoy spending time on social media and it compels them to keep returning for more. Cyber psychology behavior studies reveal in a research journal that even taking a glance at the FB logo ignites the urge to tap it right away. It is this little boost which keeps you mesmerized and returning back again and again.

The research conducted by the studies involved a group of people being shown a Chinese symbol and the Facebook logo and to choose one from them. The volunteers choosing the FB icon were more in number as opposed to those who picked the Chinese symbol.

Co-author of the study, Dr. Allison Eden of the Michigan State University says: “People are learning this reward feeling when they get to Facebook. Seeing anything connected with Facebook gets positive association back.

Since the brain understands what you will expect by opening Facebook, people find themselves using it more often than any other app in their phone – This is a sure shot sign of FB addiction.

Just as it is with any other obsession, breaking free from the clutches of Facebook can become a bit tricky. People often try giving it up and catch back on just by mistake and the cycle continues once again. Spending just a little time on the social media app is fine, but getting indulgent with it makes us feel guilty, according to Eden. While there is no need to give it up entirely, using Facebook in moderate amounts won’t do any harm either. Just remember to remove the icon from your home screen though!
