A northern Colorado woman who was playing a game on Facebook while her 13-month-old baby drowned in a bathtub was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison.
Shannon Johnson, 34, of Fort Lupton, cried as District Judge Thomas Quammen told her he didn't think she was a bad person or that she killed her son on purpose, the Greeley Tribune reported. But, he added, that doesn't mean her action wasn't criminal.
"You left this little boy in a bathtub so you could entertain yourself on the computer by playing games," Quammen said. "And you left that 13-month-old human being, little Joseph, incredibly for those reasons."

I don't understand why people view facebook as an essential in life, It has become a basic need not only for the youth but for the older generations as well. Friends, family and everyone close to me are in my phone book therefore facebook would be more of a marketing tool. Links can simply be shared via email with less effort. Therefore we come to the conclusion that facebook is mainly used for:
Impressing people and following trends.
Stalking people and gaining personal information.
A social network where you can create an alter ego/split personality.
A marketing tool for recognition and building a brand image.
A site for ranting.
A site for meeting potential dates and flirting.
Then there's the occasional lost friend that you find on facebook
