I had facebook for about 6 months after my wedding because everyone wanted to see the pictures and had been bugging me about getting an account. I did not care for it. I had friends and family I hadn't spoken to in years suddenly contacting me with comments of me FINALLY getting on facebook. Ummm...I've had the same phone number and email address FOREVER. If they really wanted to get ahold of me, they could have. I too felt like I was being punished for not communicating via facebook, but now that I was on it, I was worthy of being kept in the loop. I ended up deleting my account. I think it's great for alot of people to keep in touch with family in other locations and things like that, but if I had a dollar for every story of an argument I've heard that starts with "so, I saw on facebook..."
And all those people who had just missed me soooo much and couldn't wait to get together soon? Not a peep from any of them.
