a facebook world

A month or so back I saw that an out of touch friend was listed as dating someone on facebook (what a way to learn something) but then just recently the lovely newsfeed feature announced that the relationship had ended. And then I wondered what to do with the information that I hadn't rightfully earned by genuine human interaction.
It is a strange facebook world we live in, but it is what it is. Sometimes I don't know whether to approve or disapprove? And I wonder why we're so afraid of being known anyway? Eighteenth century new england towns (think Salem) have made a comeback in the form of an online village, and I'm not sure whether its gossip, voyeurism, or keeping in touch!
