I don't believe it. How else would you be able to search friends online? I've managed to locate hundreds of friends and relatives on facebook. Do you think that's possible via email? And before you say yes while technically correct, it is practically impossible. And the ability to update "what you're up to" with quotes, photos, etc automatically updated and broadcasted to those in your network is truly what makes social networking what it is. That's not possible via email either.
