NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Here’s the real status of Facebook: Women are completely and utterly obsessed with it.

According to a study by Oxygen Media, 39 percent of women ages 18 to 34 are self-proclaimed “Facebook addicts,” checking the social network around the clock all day long.

About 34 percent of gals say checking Facebook is the very first thing they do in the morning – even before brushing their teeth or washing their face – while another 21 percent check it late at night.

In fact, 37 percent of women have fallen asleep with their PDA in their hands, possibly checking Facebook or texting.

About 84 percent of tech-obsessed gals believe it’s okay to update their Facebook status more than once a day, while 78 think it’s fine to troll someone else’s page more than once daily.

Finally, although 63 percent of women use Facebook as a career networking tool, 42 percent think it’s perfectly fine to post pictures of themselves visibly intoxicated on their pages.
