I have used Facebook more the past month than I have the past 2 years combined. I have friended more people since I got to Korea than I have in the past 4, and that’s honestly not an exaggeration. Facebook has been a fundamental part of keeping in touch with some friends back home; I cannot overstate its messaging convenience. For continuing old networks and helping to form new ones, I am very grateful to have Facebook as a medium where this sort of contact is possible. Unfortunately, looking at it so much more than I used to has reminded me why I stopped using it.
