Social networks such as Facebook and on-line gaming are changing people's view of who they are and their place in the world, according to a report for the government's chief scientist.
The report, published by Prof Sir John Beddington, says that traditional ideas of identity will be less meaningful.
One consequence could be communities becoming less cohesive.
This change could be harnessed to bring positive changes or if ignored could fuel social exclusion, says the study.

Don't use FB, but respect others right to do so. :yes:

It simply creates  or enables another level of human interaction.  But it does become impulsive somehow, and sometimes that interferes with other levels of human interaction.

It's good for messaging...that's it.

All those bull**** pages and status updates are enough to drive you up the wall. "Like for a like" - Commence fake profiling by someone who barley knows you.

I guess people just love and crave attention.

Essentially. It's trading attention for attention.
