I agree that people do not have “the right” to use Facebook, neither are people obliged to.

That doesn’t meant that you can’t just not use Facebook. Social networks, in particular Facebook, have become a central part of social interaction. You can’t simply use another network, because they’re not interoperable. Your friends aren’t there, and you’ll be missing out.

Convince your friends that facebook as a platform is poor, and use another one (or, gasp meet face to face, or call each other up, or sms, or use good ol' email and flickr).

Any soccermom-compatible tips as how to convince them?

Or grandparent compatible ones?
