3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Brett H TOP 50 REVIEWER on 20 Aug. 2013
Format: Paperback
Facebook has had such a huge impact on our lives that it would be surprising if we did not know at least one person who is totally addicted or perhaps this applies to oneself. We have all read those minute by minute updates on people's lives with such significant gems, and I quote actual examples from this week as `we are eating lamb chops' or `tired'. Hence it is very easy to relate to this very pertinent and sometimes very funny, tongue in cheek, commentary.

There is a totally on the ball introduction which is humorous but very true. Then the format is of a cartoon on one side of the page and the catch line the other side. Perhaps a little exaggerated to make the point, but not very exaggerated for some I am sure. Faking toilet breaks to check for updates and checking FB in the cinema is strange, but not completely unusual behaviour and I am sure that many frustrated spouses will relate to some of these scenarios. Checking on a loved one's FB page for their status to find out where they are is certainly not uncommon although I am not sure that posting on their wall to ask them to come downstairs for dinner is that widespread.

The last few pages are the detox diet which include such radical solutions as get sent to jail or move to China, for the complete, unreconstructed addict. This short book is sure to raise a smile and a chuckle for almost anyone and is the perfect gift for the Facebook Fanatic in your life.

Format: Paperback
I received this book as part of Librarything's "Early Reviewers" program and I have to say that the book was a perfect match for me. I work on the Internet and I am a huge Facebook fanatic. So reading this book, I immediately identified with many of the traits that Gemini Adams says is part of Facebook addiction. The ones I found the funniest was checking FB in the cinema (yep, I do that), setting up a Facebook page for your pet (did that last month for my new dog), and checking FB to see where your other half has gone (and she does this for me too).

The book is an easy-to-read slim volume with a cartoon on one side of the page and the caption on the other side. So it won't take long to read. Something good for reading while on the toilet - while you're also checking Facebook.

Format: Paperback
Gemini Adams has already proved herself as a competent serious writer and now she turns her visual and literary and comedic gifts into what is bound to become a bestseller - The Facebook Diet: 50 Funny Signs of Facebook Addiction and Ways to Unplug with a Tech-Detox - because look around (or even in the mirror) and attempt to count the number of your social group, family and extended family, and even those daytime somnambulists walking the streets (or driving their cars) or seated in dark movie houses or restaurants, fact food diners, etc whose sole attention is glued to the little screen as they check the progress of their lives on Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg would be so proud!

While many of us are frustrated with the decline in face-to-face communication and the lost art of letter writing and other oddities we used to consider social interaction, we all have to admit that the brazen ghoul of social media has conquered. What Gemini Adams has done in this hilarious and on target book is hold a mirror to us and make us realize how addicted the world at large (age indeterminate) has become to the Facebook phenomenon. The drawings and accompanying notes of defining Facebook addiction are embarrassingly poignant, but have no fear! The last portion of the book is a diet of how to break Facebook addiction (Unplug and take a digital detox - the options are hilarious).

There are some subtle statements in this book - (such as the pages that on the left shows a man checking out Harry Hunkay on Facebook and on the right page there is an obvious politicosocial statement of a blank page...Hmmm).

Format: Paperback
This sounded fun before I received it and I knew the perfect person to gift this to, but once I had a brief flip through I wasn't sure what it was going to be like. So as I sat down to read it I was pleasantly pleased to find myself having an amusing half-hour or so. The art isn't exactly my cup of tea but the humour definitely is and while not all the comics were funny to me, the majority of them gave me at least a smile if not a giggle. The book begins with an introduction which is written in a flippant style but is actually quite informational in content about the amount of time people waste on the Internet, the part of real-life Facebook has become and then social media's downfalls in general. After the comics comes a final text section with things to do instead of going on Facebook; these ideas are mostly useful, sometimes humorous and occasionally just silly. A fun book. Will make a good gift for the Facebook addict in your life and would be fun to have set out as a coffee table book.

This was a fun visual read, combining illustrations and words to precisely describe the symptoms of Facebook addiction that many readers will recognise. A fun quick must-read!
