“Facebook is amazing because it feels like you are doing something and you’re not doing anything. It’s the absence of doing something, but you feel gratified anyway” – Sam Crocker, American Student, quoted in the New York Times.
“ I daresay it manages to connect with a large number of people, but I strongly resent the time it takes up. In the little time that I have ‘spare’, I don’t want to sit tapping at a keyboard and staring at a screen, I want to read and think”. – Author Philip Pullman quoted in Prospect magazine
