I love facebook. I've re-connected with literally dozens of people who I'd likely have never seen again. Our high school reunion was planned using facebook and it was a tremendous success. It's an easy and free way to keep track of family overseas. It is capable of holding thousands of photos and video of your family and friends that you may not have seen otherwise.
It's better than email. Attempting to send your holiday photos to all your friends via email is a nightmare. Just trying to get one picture sent thru an email is a pain in the *** and extremely time consuming. Facebook allows you to upload sixty pics at a time and it takes no time at all.
It also allows you to "tag" your pictures to show who is in them and allows your family and friends to make comments on them....
Facebook rocks. If you don't enjoy it, I guarantee it's because you aren't using it correctly.
It's the spam you get from people on your friends list (or mine). "Join the super wall, the mega wall, someone has left you a note on some friggin other wall that you search out and couldn't care less about, so and so has the 'see if you're an *******' plug in, blah blah." The home page is full of useless crap.
It's just not for me.
I would bring all of mine to a psychiatrist but it would be impossible to diagnose and treat their problems. There is no similar research or studies to refer to in the medical journals.
