This article is rather boilerplate, assuming most who post and/or scroll through the newsfeed are the same. The author is correct, I'm sure in many cases, but the responses and actions vary widely.

i enjoy watching my friend's children grow up, hearing of their milestones and like sharing some also regarding my own kids.

Local naturalists post photos of birds, animals flora...and there are frequent conversations regarding preservation, park plans, etc. Community pages discuss building, housing, transport issues.

Cultural venues can dispense their schedules easily and these events are often shared.Artists such as myself have an instant audience, feedback and discussions on process and subject.

There are indeed many opportunities for conversation and communication that augment real world experiences. Facebook is no substitute for genuine interaction, travel, accomplishment, creativity, but used sanely, it's just fine.
