Just as Facebook strengthens connections between peers, it can also enhance bonds between family members by allowing them to stay updated on each other's lives and maintain contact easily.

Through the years, you've probably accumulated a laundry list of "friends" from different stages of your life. Some "friends" you keep around because you want to see what they're up to, others you want to keep in regular contact with and the rest you're just too lazy to "unfriend."

The point here is that we should pay better attention to those we have connected with. They may have some wisdom to share on line, a video that will make us laugh when we're not feeling so great, or we find out they've died and can no longer bask in the glow of a Facebook birthday.
