Almost everyone I know uses Facebook. It can be both fun and useful. Catching up with friends from college, getting to see pictures of the new babies being born, and event planning can be helped by this technology. However, I could do without people throwing sheep at me.

Jenny Schroedel on Facebook:

“And yet, for all the appeal, I can't help but think that most of the time I spend on Facebook could be accompanied by Bono singing, "I still haven't found what I'm looking for...." Because for me, at least, Facebook offers a tease of an encounter but not the fullness. It's like gazing at a window display of another life — you can see just enough to be intrigued, but you can't get in. I mean, you can poke, or even "superpoke," but the glass is still there.”
