The very reason internet and google became famous is beacase i DID NOT have friends who think/like/have attitudes like me. everyone is unique and it is very difficult to find compatible friends having all my interests.
Hence i go on internet/google. If the info i want, would be best given by my friends, i might well as call them and have an immediate super interactive discussion than posting FB updates and waiting for an answer.
FB is going the TV way. idiot box. ppl like their minds to be fed with all general(read 'money making corporations') stuff. ppl who truly want to discover and search things will not depend on FB. Niche forums/blogs and websites is where 'quality' will exist.
Not to mention that FB requires you to first login and then do your stuff. So you are monitored all the time. what you do is the 'gold' info that FB and Corporations want. your info is the product they are selling to megacorps.
