Mike, the maturity of your thoughtful, comfortable writing skills provided me with the ideal antithesis: “Face-to-face is preferable to Facebook.” (I could not think of a better title, so I used yours. As we say here in the South, “Some things are better left alone.”)
Have you ever pretended to look someone in the eyes? When I was boy, I used my ability to entertain people to get their attention. I wanted them to look at me, but I did not want them to look into my eyes. In fact, I hid behind my charming and unusual ways until recently. I turned 51 on May 10, 2012.
Peering into someone’s eyes is the most haunting, beautiful reflection you will ever know.
"While there may be “more than 845 million” people who “trust Facebook with their information,” I can show you one who does not."
Make that two.
facebook is a good tool if you are trying to promote something, such as music in my case, but what kills me is all the useless info people post, the other day I saw a post of an empty plate with the text "just got through eating pork chops" Who cares? Ialso agree that it leaves you vulnerable and I'm sure brother has a key to the back door of the facebook machine.
I like FB and have re-connected with high school classmates and old friends and even had some come visit me. You just have to be smart and don't post details and other information on Facebook. I met my 2nd husband on a Christian singles site and we had a great 10 years before I lost him to cancer. There's good and bad on the internet.
