(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) Find yourself on Facebook a lot?
Chances are, you may be addicted.

Experts say Facebook addictions are real and mimic gambling addictions.

According to clinical psychologists, you may be addicted to Facebook if you're spending an increasing amount of time on the site or if you become anxious when everyday activities keep you from getting to it.

Another sign of addiction is choosing Facebook over social or
recreational activities.

Experts say the answer is limiting your time online.
