Interesting CNN report on Facebook Flirters and other social community addictions afflicting people today. You knew it was only a matter of time.

Hah!... This is sooo true. All of us are looking for love in all the wrong places. Is it better to have 1000 superficial friends in "Happyland" (free from body odor and complaints), as one of these women describe Facebook? Or, would you rather have 3-5 real friends, who actually know you and will accept you with all your "stuff."
While promising social ops, these superficial connections are more like the gambling and porn sites that offer instant gratification without substance and undermine the relationships that matter most.

I agree. Facebook is fine for what it is -- a way to keep in touch and share photos and news of your life. But it's not your actual life.
My prescription for people with a Facebook "addiction" is to go out and do some community service or chartity work. Put your efforts into helping real people make their real lives better.
