The Facebook Age

Many of us are well and truly in the Facebook age. New Year wishes are communicated almost exclusively via Facebook status updates or similar and reciprocated via Facebook like-clicks and comments. It's a shift from a push model (passively receive letters, greeting cards, phone calls, emails) to a pull model (actively visit Facebook to receive your wishes). The only exceptions we're willing to make are for those who are not on Facebook (grandparents et al). Although the Facebook model can be highly impersonal, it can also be highly efficient and effective. You reach out to all your family and friends in a matter of a few keystrokes. And there's still plenty of room for adding personal touches via comments et al. Thoughts?
