Like any electronic medium, it has its communication issues. Nothing beats a face to face conversation for understanding. Everything else falls short. God has designed us with the innate ability to read body language, tonal inflections, eye contact….or lack of…the ability to discern a whole raft of emotions….from sarcasm to spite.
However I do like the network aspect of it. To be able to be a part of peoples lives on a level you are comfortable with.
Someone commented that the only people on Facebook are pastors and women…I dont know what that said….but stacks of my mates are on Facebook…but a heck of a lot of them are pastors. I reckon Pastors are big on communication, connnection and networking.
