London: Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger has overcome his dislike of microblogging sites and now spends way too much time on Facebook looking up old friends.

The 68-year-old had said earlier that he had hired a personal assistant to update his online blogs, because he couldn`t keep up with modern technology, reported Aceshowbiz.

But Jagger says he is now an avid user of Facebook and has to force himself to log off to focus on his music.

"I spend way too much time on the computer and not enough time playing the guitar. There`s an underlying problem of this screen life taking over all of your Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger. It`s easy to keep in touch with people, some of whom I wish I`d never kept in touch with. But they are on Facebook," he added.
