No wait, not fondness, that's not right. What's the word I'm looking for? Ah, that's it: abject loathing.

New 'Facebook At Work' App Makes It Easier To Pretend You're Working While Browsing Facebook

Facebook and work are as synonymous as office jobs and solitaire. Sure, not everyone does it, but it's hardly surprising to catch a glance of some employee's news feed left open on a nearby monitor.
