Facebook founder tells doubter he is addicted to the social networking site

Mark Zuckerberg is addicted to his own product and spends all day on Facebook.

The Facebook CEO made the announcement on Facebook, of course, in response to a post about whether he has any time free to poke. timeline, like, or just lurk.  Social media analyst Jeremiah Cohick suggested on his own Facebook account that CEO Zuckerberg is far too busy running the Palo Alto-based web giant to actually use it.

"In the same way drug dealers don't use the product they sell, I doubt Zuckerberg is on Facebook all day. Visionaries don't idle online," Cohick posted as a status update.

He got a swift reply.

"No, I really do use Facebook all day long," Zuckerberg wrote.

The exchange prompted a flurry of comment from others, with more than 1,700 people clicking 'like' on Zuckerberg's response.

Cohick, also replied, stressing to Zuckerberg that he meant his comment as a compliment. However he added that while Facebook connects the world "in incredible ways" it can also be "an addictive outlet for boredom that replaces meaningful interaction."
