Don't blame all of that on facebook. Take responsibility for letting websites like facebook take over your life.
I personally don't...I'm guessing the younger generation does though, due to social media. I just watch less television as a result .... Which is fine.... Cos I said so :)
I don't. The reason why Facebook works for me is I have friends all over the country, and at least one friend out of country. It is a way to stay connected. Near and far we are all on different schedules, and it is easy to share are joys, sorrows, and rants about whatever has ticked us off for the day. We don't rant often, but it is nice to have friends who understand when you do.
Facebook should be useful for very long distance friends like Gator mentioned, but the more "instant" and at the moment-popular social media like Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, and texting and calling in general make it so people don't have to get up and go out to see their close-by friends for a chat.
So people would be less likely to see long-distance friends with or without social media, and less likely to see close-by friends with social media.
