You may be hooked emotionally and psychologically. You may have developed a physical dependence, too. If you’re addicted to Flickr â€” whether it’s legal or illegal â€” you have intense cravings for it. You want to use it again and again. When you stop seeing your photostream for even ten minutes, you may have unpleasant physical reactions.
An estimated 9.5 million Americans over the age of 12 use Flickr. Many other people abuse or are addicted to photostreams. Digital cameras are the most commonly used method. While not everyone who uses Flickr becomes addicted, many people do. As many as 19,000,000 people suffer from Flickr-related disorders every day.
