In Defense of Facebook
That’s when either my own common sense or the Lord interrupted my whining.
The creators of the site have enabled me to remain in contact with people I would have ordinarily lost to the circumstances of life, such as former co-workers, classmates, neighbors, friends who have moved,etc.
That, in itself, would be worth paying for and is enough to hail the site as a modern wonder of the age.
In addition, I’ve been able to engage with people I’ve never met, such as our readers, famous writers, and professionals of different stripes.
I’ve been exposed to new ideas and every political and religious position imaginable is championed by someone.
For all the clatter about it leaning left politically, I sure have a preponderance of right wing material available to view.
I would keep it bookmarked for the cat videos, if nothing else…
The problem with Facebook, (and all social media) is that by it’s nature it is full of sinners like you and me.
Attention and anonymity cause some to react in the same way as people who can’t hold their liquor.
Loudly and foolishly.
Some folks only want to hear from those who agree with them and some folks only want to hear the sound of their own voice.
These are the people who want to “break up” Facebook…do not count me among them.
Homogeneity is dreadfully boring and leads to inbreeding, which leads to the deformity of once useful ideas.
I celebrate living in a time when God has allowed us this tool…your mileage may vary…
I’m not joining your group on “Proofs of a Flat Earth”, but I’m glad you can create it.
Make your own application…
