Are you a Facebook creeper or participant?

I have often been accused of always being on Facebook.  Yes, I admit it, I am a tad addicted to this form of social media.  I guess it boils down to my curious nature, (aka being a sticky beak!) and the fact that I love being social. I have also been accused of putting too…
