Social Dependence

Once again, Facebook have been in the news this week and this time, because people have not been able to access Facebook. Now I appreciate that it is a very useful tool to share news and information with your peers, however the dependence that some people have to this kind of site is astonishing.

One affected person stated that they were attempting to access the site for “ages” before giving up (BBC, accessed 25th Sept ’10). If I was in the same situation, I am sure that I could find some other internet site to browse around rather than sitting around for “ages” waiting for a problem to be fixed.
