I just get annoyed at wannabe intellectuals my age talking about how Facebook sucks and technology is bringing people apart. There are definitely things I dislike about Facebook and other services, like how sloppy people have gotten with spelling and grammar, but overall I really like technology and the internet and how easy it is to communicate with people now.
Both effects exist. Many people prefer online communication over in-person communication due to a variety of reasons. Online personas are also frequently different from the real ones. One doesn't have to be a wannabe intellectual to observe such things.
What does one's age have to do with the validity of one's ideas? You are young aren't you?
