If you’re on Facebook you undoubtedly had days when you felt like you’d fallen into a black hole. Hours go by before you know it and you really hate to think about how much time you’ve spent seeking and accepting friendship and rediscovering people from earlier parts of your life that you’d never catch up with any other way.

Now let’s see if you’re man or woman enough to face up to how much time you’ve been spending in that black hole.

To celebrate Facebook’s upcoming 10th anniversary, Time Magazine has created a calculator app that searches timestamps on users’ posts to find the earliest ones and then works from there to determine how many hours you’ve spent poking, friending and posting.

Facebook doesn’t publicize data on exactly how often a user logs in, but this app can help you find out and it just might frighten you. Users who are extraordinarily active on the site may get an estimate that begins considerably later than the actual date that they joined.
