I wasn't asking for much money (the price of a cup of coffee), I wasn't asking people to leave home, to choose anything, to drive anywhere. I'd done all the work for them, they trusted me, they knew the project was real, they knew the gloves were going to real people and all they had to do was press one button. So they did. Facebook likes and Amazon wishes were turned (as if by magic) into real life love.

We live in a connected world and part of that involves staying connected. If there is no real reason to remove someone it's probably better to keep connections than remove them. Many friendships lie idle for 20 years and then suddenly flourish again, you just can't tell.

Is it a bad thing that Facebook only really consists of the airbrushed highlights of everyone's lives and that no one is ever really honest about their day to day reality? Why people tend not to write status updates when their life is a bit bobbins but just boast post instead? Is social media making some people feel inadequate because their lives are less than perfect?

My affection, for this virtual coffee shop was poignantly brought to my attention when two dear friends were killed in a tragic traffic accident.

I grieved with the Friends of my friends, most of whom I had never met.

Have we only achieved something when we have children and have a ring (metaphorical) on our finger? I don't just ask this as a woman, I mean this for guys as well because do you feel pressure to marry and settle down and have kids? Do you even want to? Is it wrong if you don't?

Whilst there are many positives about this amazingly successful website, I've chosen for comedic purposes to highlight in this article, a less endearing aspect of Facebook - the annoying Facebook friends we all have to live with.

They're the winners of the most competitive popularity contest on earth and every aspect of their life is so damn fantastic that it needs to be shared with their legions of adoring friends. But how the hell do these cocky little upstarts do it and how can you achieve similar glorification from your online acquaintances?

To anyone who shares life so freely all I'd say is be careful, protect yourself and the day you find yourself contemplating bad news and if it's too soon to post it to Facebook, give it a miss and make a phone call or two, the sound of a familiar voice far outweighs the sympathy of 200 people you haven't seen or spoken to for as long as you can remember.
