500,000+ Torontonians Addicted to Crack

Hi everyone, my name is Ryan C., and I'm an addict.

I haven't been one for very long. In fact, most of my friends were addicts long before I ever got into it. I'd resisted the temptation for months, instead drowning myself in other substances.

But MySpace has nothing on this, like a sweet, sweet burn of sun and summer wind, and it, my friend, my new thing. Facebook has become much more than a summer fling.

Going by Facebook network associations, Toronto has more users than any other city in the world, beating out New York City, which has a population of almost 19 million people compared to Toronto's 5 million, by almost 300,000 users.

What this means is that there are half a million people in Toronto who are currently poking their way through their days instead of working, studying, or feeding their elderly relatives.

And blogTO is by no means immune to this crack masquerading as social networking. If you have a Facebook account (don't lie) then be sure to join the blogTO Facebook group.

While you're at it, join my personal crusade to poke Belinda Stronach as much as possible. She pokes back, frequently, and once she does you can join this group, one so awesome that it's second only to blogTO's.

BTW, if you can't access any of the links, it's cuz you don't have an account, which means you are teh suxxor.
