I, for a change, use Facebook to keep being connected with old friends and buddies, with whom I will definitely lose touch, if there were no similar tools.
I’d argue the opposite: Facebook and its incredible model keeps us from forgetting about these classmates we had, or about this cool colleague we met and chatted with on a conference.
It’s not about kittens and hearts.
Facebook is just a tool. Not a cancer. Because we have the choice in our own hands. The cancer does not give you much of a choice.
