Kari Henley: Are Facebook Friends "Real" Friends? Well, I have to say one thing - HuffPost readers rock! This is one spirited group and thanks to everyone who joined in on the lively debate about "Facebook and Kids" last week. Clearly there is a lot of energy, pent up emotion, generational gaps and strong opinions regarding the "tipping point" of Facebook and other social networking sites. Today I'd like to explore why social networking in general has touched a collective nerve. Yet, this prism has many sides. "But do you really consider these relative strangers to be your 'friends?"' So, what gives? Let's look at Wikipedia's definition of Friendship: Friendship is a term used to denote co-operative and supportive behavior between two or more people.

And even Twitter experts might benefit from a quick refresher on the platform's valuable tools. First, the basics: What is Twitter all about?

Disruptive Conversations: The 10 ways I learned to use Twitter in 2007... (aka Why and How I use Twitter) UPDATE - April 9, 2008: Four months later, I revisited the ways I've learned to use Twitter and added a few more. How have I learned to use Twitter in my online communication? Let me count the ways... After Chris Brogan posted his "Twitter Revisited" piece last week and on the same day Jeremiah Owyang talked about popularity and Twitter, I put some thought into how Twitter has substantially changed the ways in which I communicate online. Some of this I talked about in my segment into Mitch Joel's Yuletide podcast, and some of it listeners to For Immediate Release will hear in my report into today's FIR. In this post, I want to lay out in a longer form (< 140 characters!) 1. This morning (US Eastern time) former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated.

Is Facebook Making Us Lonely? - Stephen Marche Yvette Vickers, a former Playboy playmate and B-movie star, best known for her role in Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, would have been 83 last August, but nobody knows exactly how old she was when she died. According to the Los Angeles coroner’s report, she lay dead for the better part of a year before a neighbor and fellow actress, a woman named Susan Savage, noticed cobwebs and yellowing letters in her mailbox, reached through a broken window to unlock the door, and pushed her way through the piles of junk mail and mounds of clothing that barricaded the house. Upstairs, she found Vickers’s body, mummified, near a heater that was still running. Her computer was on too, its glow permeating the empty space. The Los Angeles Times posted a story headlined “Mummified Body of Former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers Found in Her Benedict Canyon Home,” which quickly went viral.
