Karen, yes it is certainly possible to be sucked into this vortex, and getting comments or likes on something that we've said seems so gratifying. I will say though that Facebook for me is mostly for the friends who do not live where I currently do, and whom I see infrequently. Facebook makes me feel a connection with people I know elsewhere and from another time (e.g., you and I went to college together, and given all my college Facebook connections, I feel a sense of community with them that I wouldn't otherwise). Of course, if I actually were able to visit those people, I might be surprised that there isn't that much a connection anymore. Who knows?

The real problem is moderation and how you use it, like with any tool and many innovations. But it can be addictive, and that is why finding that balance is so hard.
