I'd say it's 2nd to cell phone texting but it still makes me hate it. When I meet new people they think something is wrong with me because I don't have a facebook. Or that I'll call them for real instead of reply to a text w/ another text and they're always "why didn't you just text me".
No facebook is a handicap when meeting and staying in touch with people in the mid 20s. Honestly I am thinking of making a new profile or digging up my old one and using it - once in a while. I haven't touched facebook since it debued. All I did was register, look it over once and log out. My profile is probably still there, untouched since 2003 if they don't purge them. My university in fall 03 iirc sent out an email to all students saying "hey check this out, find study partners!" It seemed dumb because anybody I would have friended lived in the same co-ed building as me anyways. And it's not like a bunch of horny college kids would use it to find study partners anyways.

If you work purchasing and/or sales and some of your vendors use it to post about promotional sales or discounts it's extremely useful.
