I agree that in some cases a person refusing to be on Facebook can be attributed to the fact that they are socially withdrawn and those types often
end up bringing a gun to work or to school and paint the walls with their colleagues (RIP to all those involved in such events). Is this the case for
all those refusing to be on Facebook? No!
The problem is how do we get organized socially without having proper ID? ID was a joke just 40-50 years ago. Fraudsters were having a field day
knowing how gullible people were. How do you control who gets what and how often? We live on a finite planet with finite resources how to allocate
them equally and fairly to every last one of us Is this not what we all want? Or do you want us to fight for every last shred of land, water and food.
Food, water, shelter, clothes, work and a place to chill out is what we want I think fundamentally. We are living in exponential times. In other
words, the world population is growing faster and faster as more people copulate and there are users and abusers in everything, some contribute,
others hitch a free ride. What to do to solve this? I for one think money without interest is a start to the solution to all this but that is a
The reason why I am saying this is because government forces you to reveal all these things about yourself and people cheat and lie including the
government, this information is then re-injected in to the system to adjust the need for X or Y. But on facebook people whole heartedly give the same
information away and more. Why not use it? I understand that this is a great tool that can be used to do good just like it can be used to be
malicious. With great power comes great responsibility. Back in the old times in villages which was pretty much everywhere, everybody knew everybody
and what they were up to. You didn't need facebook because of the small demography of people. Now, is a different story. Does this mean that being
private was something missing in the old days? If we are alive today it's because our ancestors lived together and shared I would think.
In conclusion, is facebook an absolutely necessary tool for society? Maybe not Facebook but something along those lines. Like I said it all depends on
how we use it. Right now given the circumstances, I feel like it is more a tool for control and power versus weighing out the best interest of the
masses. But, sadly we cannot know or control this yet.
