Facebook has brought a strange reality to our world. Where once we just were 'friends' with some people. Now there is a moving for some to thrust upon us an element of 'close friends'. It spews forth on my 'wall'.
A friend who is going though courtship, details, I'm not sure I want to know.
The bereavement of a husband by the loss of his wife. Incredibly moving.
The strange suggestion by facebook to be a dead persons 'friend'. As if to keep the memory alive.

I ask myself can I  truly be there friend? There is an element of friendship now missing face to face interaction.

I ask myself is this real?
I suspect it is now verging on entertainment, and I am the consumer.
