NO, it's no addictive, and its actually very unhelpful when people are encouraged by naive counsellors, psychobabblers and journalists, to label all forms of maladaptive or inconvenient behaviour choices as "addiction", especially as this implies that it is not your personal responsibility and that there's nothing much you can do about it.
Facebook is a sad waste of time, cunningly designed to encourage people to waste their time on it, and to create fantasies that they're doing something meaningful and worthwhile, that they are finding actual friends instead of artificial "friends" ; and the comforting delusion that there are actual people out there who genuinely care about you and what you do and think. And that those people are so anxious to know immediately about every tiny event and thought in your life, that "Updating your profile" brings joy to their lives.
