Catherine loved Facebook. With Facebook she could stay connected with her family no matter how far away they were.
She could see their photos and read their status updates.
With Facebook she could keep her relatives up to date on what she was doing.
Another thing Catherine loved about Facebook was that she didn't have to think about time zones when updating family.
Whenever she called her parents or other relatives,
she always had to think about the time difference so that she wouldn't wake someone up or call when she knew they were in church.
Facebook was so convenient.
When Catherine joined Facebook, some of her classmates at high school started to add her as a friend.
At first, this didn't bother her.
She loved learning about the success of people she knew when she was just a teenager.
She loved finding out people were getting married, having babies and traveling.
Soon, however, Catherine found herself comparing herself with the people she was reading about on Facebook.
It began to make her feel bad that some people seemed to be doing so much better than she was.
She was also spending a lot of time on Facebook.
It took a lot of time and energy to keep up with everyone's status updates. Catherine started to think.
She looked at the list of over 500 friends she had on Facebook and realized some of them were not really friends at all.
