When I feel like socializing and there are no new e-mails in my inbox - I go on gag to socialize with strangers. I also like that you can ask anonymous questions on this site. I will ask questions about my career or my religion or my social problems and make my question anonymous. I have been followed on other sites where being anonymous isn't possible.
It certainly can be. I'm here because I enjoy helping people, learning from reading about their problems and what other users recommend, and the best part... I get to trade my effort and education into money I can use on Amazon.
The expansion on here has made me not want to bother anymore, so it's not addictive anymore. It used to be a lot better before in my opinion, minus a few issues here and there. I liked it much more when it was easier to navigate around, and when it had a community/live chat.
