Facebook and communication

A friend of mine recently posted an interesting comment on Facebook. It was a remark suggesting that maybe this wasn’t the best medium to take on serious issues (such as gun control). and that pithy comments¬† can do more to alienate people than to foster meaningful dialogue.

I’ll be taking a look at this in future posts. This is an issue that is probably one that we are all grappling with indirectly. When I think about how many people I know – but only because of my contact with them on Facebook, I am beginning to realize that the notion of the FB post is somewhat lossy and superficial and I wonder how well I really know anyone out there in the cyber world.

What is it I am looking for; what am I selling and who is buying?
