    The recent movie "The Social Network" may be a reality-based fiction but I think that it does capture the essence of why FB is what it is.  I find it interesting that the tone and style of the few discussion threads over there are already different, in my view, than those here on NavList.

    Facebook subverts the meaning of "friend". To be or have a friend was
    once regarded highly, now it is one step(?) above total stranger. So -
    what word do we now use to describe what once was "a friend"?
