Pretty much the only way that would be true would be if 30% of Americans who use Facebook haven't seen *anyone* in the past two months.  Most people have at least 1 family member, 1 co-worker, and 1 regularly seen friend as a Facebook friend.  I'm calling BS on this

Uhm - that's why I use FB - to keep up with friends who are thousands of miles away.  Why do I need to have somebody on FB who I see everyday?

Sounds like technology is bridging the gap when it comes to keeping up with friends in a busy world.

RottenEggs: It helps me keep track of my family's shenanagans  since I live 500 miles away .


agreed, most of my family is in canada, hungary or philippines. Facebook is a great way for me to catch up on what idiotcy my family is up too. Few minutes on facebook chat and I know everything my uncles and aunts have done - who has passed away and who gave birth.

What more needs to be said? nothing!

You have to accept the good and the bad of Facebook. Yes, you have to deal with countless baby pictures and idiot rants. On the other hand, it's an easy way to keep up with people you don't see very often or to find people from your past.

A friend and I lost touch and didn't talk for like 15 years. I randomly searched her and we reconnected via FB. She went to my wedding a few years ago, wife and I are visiting her in London next year. How does this happen without Facebook?

I have Electrosomic Synaesthesia, a condition where I sense electronic inputs incorrectly, and Facebook is a huge no-go area for me.
It just smells bad, like 3000 yawning bank managers, the whole infinite stench, you know?

I have one friend who only uses facebook to keep in touch with friends she's made overseas.  She refuses to befriend any Americans.  So this applies to her.

Therefore, it can be extrapolated to 30% of Americans.

/you can't argue with therefore.
