Addiction to social media, including websites like Facebook, is a real thing.  Researchers overseas say that the problem is growing, but they have finally developed a test for it.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon has more in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Do you need a Facebook intervention?  Norwegian researchers have developed a Facebook addiction test, similar to ones used for alcoholics and drug addicts.  

Elements of the test include how often a user is on the social networking site, if it is used to forget about life problems and if it has a negative impact on work or social life.

They say young women and those who are socially insecure are at the highest risk.
