I get what you are saying Jan.
Kind of like writing a letter to the editor of a
newspaper to complain about something that is
absolutely and totally out of they're control...

No need for psychologists anymore - we have Facebook. Want to know if someone has low self esteem? Facebook. Overestimates the importance of their daily activities in our lives? Facebook. Angry or bitter? Facebook. Lack of understanding about what is socially appropriate and what isn't? Facebook. And I love it. You can't buy that kind of entertainment anywhere else.

Do not really agree with this letter.
There are lots of highly successful people, who demand lots of attention, and validation, for what they do.
We call them actors and singers.
In fact we spend millions of dollars a year to know each time these celebrities blow their nose, or eat a pancake.
Facebook is just the average persons way of being noticed.

And this is different than grown up women undergoing breast augmentation surgery or dressing provocatively how?

Really???

I read this amazing quote in a great young adult novel titled WONDER recently. The main character, who narrates the story says "Everyone needs a standing ovation at least once in their life." I agree, and whether you like it or not, Facebook provides a lot of people that validation they need to continue pushing on. Pushing that like button is sort of like giving your friends a digital hug when they need it.
