: Thanks so much for your brilliant post -- and here I thought i was the only person left on the planet who refuses to join Facebook!
Same with me - I still use e-mail to stay in touch with distant friends like I did in 1995... at least with those also not yet hooked on Facebook (which, fortunately, by far is the majority of them!).
To me it appears that many people just have given up plain e-mail - probably because of the spam plague which started in the early 2000s and rendered e-mail useless, unless you pay a little extra money to get a decent server filter.
And, yes, according to all I heard about Facebook inmates (yes, really... it's a huge, brightly colored painted prison, like most of the Internet nowadays!) this addiction cripples their entire social life! Imagine friends meeting in a bar or café - and just caressing their smartphones instead of talking to each other! Sick!!!
See you in Khyberspace!
