Facebook: Connection without community?

Interesting article found at Christianity Today.com entitled The Facebook Fast. It poses the question "Can community happen online?"

Have a read and let me know what you think.

Anne and I had an interesting conversation about this(we email), although we do agree and I'm also on a social media fast.
(yes I started first :-P),
I feel the article doesn't quite emphasise all the aspects of community that exist online, but still i agree with her.
But check out her book, Mad Church Disease its an awesome read and deals with my favourite subject volunteers. :-) but you should read it if you can, in fact I'll see if i can send you a copy :-)

Thanks Graeme for your comments. Always thoughtful. Mad Church Disease is a great title for a book.
