I like Facebook. I am in touch with people I cared about but had lost contact with because of it. I like seeing pictures of what their grandchildren are, what their pet looks like, etc. Texting is extremely convenient in a number of ways. For instance I can text either daughter at work, and they can answer when they are free to.

I know some people just get adicted to it. Pedestrian/vehicle accidents have skyrocketed in NYC as texting became more popular. People would be so engrossed in their phone screen that they'd step out to cross the street without looking up. You can get a ticket for that in NYC just as you can for jaywalking.

Had a woman jaywalking AND texting once a I was coming out of a supermarket. She's very lucky I missed her.

Facebook did not require anymore info to join than this website....
Don't listen, it's really Facebook. It found the way here when you invoked it's name!

Assbook used to always suggest my ex as a friend. So I sent her a friend request which she either ignored or deleted and she has not been seen since. She did ask why I did it.
