Can a person survive in this day and age without a Facebook page? Can I call myself truly savvy without one? I recently disengaged with FB and I deactivated my account. I haven’t been on for a couple of weeks.

Here is my fear. Have people come to expect that I should know what is going on in their lives because it was posted on FB? Do they see it as an affront because I don’t know something about them that they shared with the world?

One friend of mine asked me how I will continue to communicate without Facebook. I said that I would talk to people. She laughed at the absurdity of her question, but is that what FB has become?

Is there a Post-Facebook world, or are we all caught up in the idea of Social Networking to the point that everything else is obsolete? Right now I belong to several social networks online, but no one seems to use them nearly as much as FB.

Anyway… just wanted to share.
