I don't need people checking in or messaging all that often. Nor do I want to know every little thing about people. A little mystery behind the people you know is nice.

What was it the whole distance makes the heart grow fonder, I find this to be more relevant today then it has ever been.

its a good time capsule or timeline for pics and events, even if i lose all my physical pictures and things ive done, it will still be backed up online, as long as nothing happens to internet.

People will post the most ridiculous bits of information about themselves and I read about someone getting in trouble for posting a picture or making a dumb comment on Facebook at least once a week if not more.  It's as if .these people lose their ability to make wise decisions

I suspect that out of the gazillions of posts made there are bound to be a few really dumb ones.

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.
Like anything if you let it, it can be a little consuming.  Just like TV, just like all sorts of things.  I am an optimist so I look at what this technology can do to help people. It does connect people, especially people that are cut off for some reason.....maybe an illness, maybe location.  I think we are living in exciting times.  We are just beginning to enter a new realm where billions have a voice.  As more people become connected the power of the internet grows.

'where billions have a voice' ....... hmm, all that seems to happen is they're shouting to be heard! Everyone's shouting and no-one is listening :no: .
But I agree that it's great for people stuck at home for whatever reason.

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.
