    I kinda like facebook though, in the sense that they're always there on your list, on your wall, and there's always a chance to reconnect with old friends or just familiar people. I've made a few new and close friends just by saying happy birthday and going from there.

    You mean today, tomorrow, and any day after that? I didn't realize that every person has to twat about what they're doing.

    tl;dr: I don't hardly text or "social media".

    Hope she didn't major in engineering if she couldn't even keep a wall up.

    I am a newcomer to the world of Facebook, and have found it as addictive as just about everything else on the internet. You get rewarded when you log on, but just not EVERYTIME you log on. Psychologists call it "variable ratio reinforcement". It is why slot machines work.

    Could I get along without it? Obviously, yes. I lived most of my life without it, and could do so again.

    As far as reconnecting with old college friends and high school chums, I have not had much success. Most (those that are still alive) still write on their walls with hammers and chisel.

    Most of my old school mates on FB took Mills and Boon as a template - became nurses and married a doctor. Makes me giggle a lot.

    if facebook ceased to exist, id probably find something else... IRC, forums, MSN ect... all social media ive been playing with since i was 14. There is always going to be social media, its been around for many years, just because non geeks and such are getting into now makes it dire for some people.

    I've never understood the fascination with Social Networks - I'm a member of tons of them: Bebo, Livejournal, Journalfen, MySpace (I think I'm now 105 there), FB, now Google+. Bebo is for Welsh Rugby, LJ has it amusing bits or my-life-is-worse-than-yours-so-I-can't-feel-bad, JF for snark and mocking, FB to keep an eye on my eldest at uni. Not sure what role Google+ is going to have yet.

    I think it's the fascination with two things. Seeing the number of friends and who comments on your stuff. Actually getting in touch with someone from gradeschool is cool for about five minutes, then it's back to the numbers and comments game.

    I'd say I could do without it. I just mainly use FB for chatting and that because a lot of the people I would talk to on msn don't go there anymore. Sometimes I talk to someone on FB and msn at the same time. I don't care much for the rest of it aside from the occasional profile lurkings.
