How would you feel if you just learned about an important family event from a Facebook update and not directly from the family member themself?
How would you feel if you realized that in fact they had tried to call you (they didn't leave a message saying WHY they called because they wanted to tell you directly), but you never bothered to return their call?
My step-daughter recently got engaged and tried to call her brother to tell him. He didn't return the call. A couple of days later his girlfriend saw on Facebook that my step-daughter was engaged. He felt miffed that his sister didn't tell him and that he had to find out from his girlfriend who read about it on Facebook.
Family drama made better by social networking!
