        Nowadays, people are busy making their own social pages and sites. They are hook in all sorts of friends sites (i.e. friendster, tagged, hi5, my space, digg, twitter, facebook). They feel and think that it is a way of communicating and bonding with friends. But do they really bridge the gap and distance? Do they truly feel the presence of their love ones and friends? Or it is one of the so called fillers?

        I happened to visit my friend Issas website. I read about her newly posted article which tells about her facebook deactivation. I was actually surprised about it because she is amiable. She was actually the one who introduced me into facebooking.  Well not because she deactivated her facebook account it means she is anti - social. Maybe she is right.  Facebooking took our precious time. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

        As for me, facebooking helps me find my long lost friends and former schoolmates and classmates. It is also my means to know the latest escapades and achievements of my friends, to get in touch with them and my students especially those who are overseas, to chat and converse with them, and to post my website link so that everyone could read it. 

        I perfectly understand that as other perceive it productively there could be an underlying disadvantages. The way I see it there are points in her article. It is true that, in order for you to be hip and cool you need to check your account everytime, and update your status. Also, it is a false means of connection due to surreal and superficial tie. Instead, let us revive the natural, infinite, ethereal bond. Nothing can beat the personal presence and quality time spent.

        Yet for now, Im enjoying what facebook offers me. I have a great time type chatting and video chatting with my friends and my Korean students. What about you?
