    it has some advantages, you can catch up with people who you lost touch with from your past. it probably will be around for a while or until some one comes up with something bigger and better.

    it is a good way of keeping in touch with family and friends who stay away but does get boring! i think in time someone will come along with something bigger and better and take the focus away from facebook!! elephant

    and what about people going for jobs....do you know it is a fact that the majority of employers will search sites such as facebook to get background info on prospective employees...are there any other threats like this do you think?

    Perhaps the biggest threat to Facebook is the guy who invented it...he doesnt like what it has done to the world...he says people need to start talking face to face again and being themselves...I tend to agree...

    You know, we could use the facebook and meet with friends face to face - just too hard to keep the balance.
