You can say no to a second glass of wine and have no trouble skipping the dessert course. But if you don't hit up Facebook a couple of times each day you start to get a little itchy.
You may be Facebook dependent - and that's not necessarily a bad thing, according to new research into how and why people use the social media site.

The study of Facebook users has become a thing, with research connecting a wide range of dots - from studies showing that heavy social media users have higher body mass indices and more credit card debt to other research suggesting that social-media addiction shares similar "neural features" with gambling and substance addictions.
With over 70 percent of all Internet users on Facebook - and 70 percent of those individuals engaging with the site daily - studying users' behavior is an interesting way to plumb the depths of the human mind.

Here's more about what the latest study found about Facebook dependence:
The more a person relies on Facebook to help meet his or her goals, the more dependent they are on the site. The most dependent individuals are those who use the site to meet new people. (Other goals include finding nearby social events or reading news.)
Dependency isn't addiction, and dependence on the site isn't necessarily unhealthy.
People who think of Facebook as a tool they can use to better understand themselves - in form of feedback on their posts, for example - tend to go to the site to get attention from friends and to meet new friends.
Individuals who use Facebook to better understand themselves often have "agreeable" personalities, but they tend to have lower self-esteem than people who use the social media site in other ways.
Other key factors in Facebook dependency are (1) using the site to see how other people approach problems in their lives (2) using the site for information and (3) using the site for entertainment.
People who use the site to meet new people tend to be extroverts, which makes them generally more willing to share personal information on the platform. But, caution the researchers, their disclosures are not always truthful.
How can you tell if dependence has crossed over into addiction? Never fear. Psychologists have created a test for that.
