Social Networking Sites. Love em' or hate em'??

August 28, 2008 6:28am CST
I am a member of a social networking site and currently have 131 genuine friends. Some of them I talk to both online and face to face and some of them I dont speak to at all. My partner thinks the whole thing is nonsense and that if I want to speak to my friends I should visit or phone them. He also says that if I will never speak to some my friends I have listed then why I have chosen to be their friends online. I can see his point but I still disagree. What are your views on this subject?

It's not nonsense . I am a member of three such sites now and love both of them (this includes MyLot). Back in college I was also in a site called Friendship Forum and it was really nice.

I completely agree. Unfortunately we don't always have time to meet up with friends so it is nice to catch up online. Some friends I don't particularly want to meet up with buts its nice to know how things are going for them. Also, the majority of these sites are free so how can you complain??
