Facebook Frenzy

Is Facebook another way to avoid human contact? Despite my elementary skills and confusion at finding posts, I can lurk in the photos of relative strangers and check on what others are doing, without any communication on my part. Better than caller ID, facebook posts offer superficial information without reciprocation – and an endless supply of word games to numb the mind.

The new movie – The Social Network – based on Ben Mezrich’s The Accidental Billionaires – is a good story. But. like facebook, it’s more fiction than science.
