What's wrong with the *REAL* world? Nobody can communicate like human beings anymore. Are you one of those people that doesn't exist in the real world? Only online?

Odd that you make this comment on the Internet.

Facebook, and social networks in general, is merely one of many ways in which to communicate, and as such is neither morally better, nor morally worse, than any other kind of communication.

It seems to me that's morally worse than other ways of communicating with people...
