Another reason to leave Facebook.

Someone mentioned this in an online forum recently
"Facebook's good for family as much as anything else, really."
 Ostensibly its "social media software" but its very broken; I was using Facebook for probably 3 years there before I determined that apart from sharing photos, it was in fact anti-social.
  •  Wasn't more connected with anyone or anything, in fact more isolated.  Status updates and comments are sort of like talking about the weather: they're filler.
  • No dates, no new friends, no meaningful exchanges at all.
So independent of Facebook's stupid privacy policies, switching back to phone calls, email, and even instant messengers has been a far better move.
