Only your friend can say for sure, and it's certainly worth debating because we may one day find out once and for all. <br><br> Ok, no it's not worth debating because it's impossible to ever ascertain the answer.

8 Reasons I am not on Facebook

The Facebook Venn Diagram<br><br>All of the biggest conformists I know are on Facebook (as well as plenty of non-conformists too, admittedly). However, a lot of my least conforming friends, who are the deepest thinkesr, are NOT on Facebook. Same with ingelligence- all the stupid people I know are on Facebook, and that isn't true of all the smartest people I know. Maybe it's not that great.
