I mean, it's just like gaming, we play it for an obscene amount of time.

I can remember my groupnof friends birthdays, but I can't remember a friends birthday who went to primary school with me who I havent seen since then.

Same goes for using said items. You might have them, but it means keeping track of five different items! Why do that when you have all the information in one spot on Facebook?
Put it this way; I don't think any previous generations would have kept in touch with as many old friends as current generations do with Facebook. I might not be genuine friends with all people on my FB, but at least the contact is there, a permanent reminder of my past.
I don't think it's as much a social cancer as I used to think. I don't rely on it any more than I do my phone, car or internet in general. It's become a part of life and there's nothing wrong with it. It's a very helpful social tool. I doubt I'd speak to half the people I do now if not for FB.
