God help us. Some folks there have more than 500 "friends." They need, instead, to get a real life instead of virtual reality, and that isn't even real.
While I have the same mindset as you, who cares how people spend their time? There are no set guidelines for "getting a life", and if there were then life would be pretty boring. I bet there are people who think posting on a webmaster forum is weird and anyone who does so should "get a life". Don't bash what others do because you don't understand it.
Facebook has some value for companies - but it surely is not buying adspace - at least for most of them.
The game is constantly changing. I could argue that ad blindless increases every year and AdSense won't be around forever. I could also argue that Facebook will start their own search and cut Google out of the picture. As long as Facebook stays profitable, having control over so many committed visitors can only be considered a great thing for them, and very bad for competing companies.
