Staying in touch via Facebook is over-rated

Surprise brings delight in relationships. Tina Brown of The Daily Beast (19 million pageviews/month) says about her non-existent Facebook usage:

What about Facebook?No, I don’t use Facebook. I absolutely don’t want to stay in touch with everybody in my past. I really believe in falling out of touch with people.

...There’s something very healthy about not seeing someone for three years, not knowing what they’re doing, running into them, and finding that they’re now utterly changed. You know, they have gray hair now and they’re divorced. If I was on Facebook, I would know all those things, and I don’t want to know them.
