  • I wouldn't say closer or further.. FB just keeps me in the loop of what's happening ^^

  • well on the one hand i've reconnected with certain family members via facebook.... but on the other hand, I find I spend less time with my kids since i"m on facebook.

  • Closer - definitely. I've also found a lot of grammar school friends and people that I had lost touch with (but never want to lose touch with). Of the 200 or so (family members - both my side and DH's side) that are on there, I've only had trouble with 1...

  • I live on the opposite side of the country as mine and DH's family for now, so I think that I would say it's brought us closer. It's the only way that most of them get to see pictures of my kids.

  • I think it has had zero impact. I treat Facebook as yet another form of entertainment.

  • maily was never close to being with. This made it easier for me to tell them I hate them for never supporting or loving my unconditionally.

  • Definitely closer. I've reconnected with many family members that I'd lost touch with and can keep up with what everyone is doing. I have a niece and family in the Marine Corp in Japan and the only way I get to see her babies is online. I love facebook!
