Hello all,
I did not want to start an argument  for or against Facebook. But so many 
mails appear to  make you believe that Facebook is really" innocent and 
safe" but missing the  real point.  So many studies  declare the contrary; 
Facebook is a  social phenomen in which we can get  "caught up .
Personally I don't need it socially  and for my business I can easily do 
without it . One or two forums is enough for me and for the rest I rely on 
direct personal contacts.
Just look at this Youtube; it explains more than I can say. Furtheron there 
are so many social studies which explain how  we want to be part of this 
trend  and how it never satifies what we are really looking for.
Kind greetings

resource for fulfilling the basic human need for social connection. Rather 
than enhancing well-being, however, these findings suggest that Facebook may 
undermine it.
