Facebook – the new existential question

Being on Facebook is a little comfort for those who don’t feel they exist. It’s like a star who has to be in the news – have their 15 minutes – in order to feel that they exist in the world. Facebook is a little like that. Say hi to people we do and don’t really know. We exist…or do we? It’s a little like being up in the sky on a spaceship. What comfort would they have that they exist, that they are wanted, missed, loved…start typing…say hello, we are here……….. Is this the new existential question? “I am on Facebook, therefore I am.”
