quote: How do you know that people don't call for 30 min a month AND use facebook daily?
quote: That is a very thin assumption most social media haters make.
quote: Probably because I have talked to them about what some of their friends are doing since the last time they were here and they have know real idea, but they can tell you what they posted today on FB. Most of the time they just tell me that they haven't talked to them.
quote: Wow, talk about assumptions, I hate being social, that is what I understand from your comment. I actually visit and call my friends as much as I can, I am more social than most and FB is not a substitute for up close and personal. My mind IS open and I like people and actually talk to them, not just what most people on FB describe as brief messages with "Friends".
quote: It is very arrogant to think that users are just on FB and never call a family member all month long.
quote: again... based on your whopping 20 people you know...you are saying everyone either:
quote: Social networks can be very useful for lazy people like myself who have friends and family who've moved all over the world and who don't just spam their status messages with what they had for lunch, so maybe I'm lucky, but facebook is handy. I only check it a few times a week though.
quote: Facebook would really have to screw things up to be replaced five years from now.
