Some folks love Facebook. Others don't want anything to do with it. Does it cause us to grow even more isolated, sitting alone with our computers, rather than getting together with real, live friends to share time together? One thing that Facebook does well is connect people who live far apart from each other: old college classmates, cousins who share a family history but who live so far apart that they can't easily get together. And just as kindness and compassion can be extended between friends who live in the same community, it can also be extended through cyberspace.
