My biggest point to my kids is that being connected and having access to people’s walls and private information does not a friendship make. If friendships are well established, Facebook is a great way to stay in tune with day-to-day goings on, but at no time is it a substitute for the real thing. Biblical friendship is demanding and there is no way we can fulfill the mandate of encouraging, holding up, and living life together with 500 friends. For the same reason, no amount of “likes” on Facebook will fill our need for community, for communion. There’s only One who can do that and He is the only friend who won’t ignore your statuses or diss your links or defriend you.
