    Has Facebook, increased or decreased your in-person contact with friends and family?

    I don't think it's decreased any in-person contact.  I think facebook has increased it.  I am in contact with high school and college friends, and we've planned reunions and girls' nights.  Without facebook, I don't think our turn-outs would have been nearly as large.

    I think it has increased my p2p contact, a lot of us make "events" and invite whoever is on the friends list and its great for those weekends you didn't have anything to do!

    it has definitely increased it. now it's practically a family reunion "everyday" without ever actually saying a word.

    Absolutely increased it was easy to have contact with them always even though days at works make you so busy you can still make a simple hi and hello with them.

    I think Facebook has done both, I have increased with some friends but decreased with others.

    Increased, without question. There's a buzz created.

    FB lets me stay in touch with people I would actually see in person anyway, and has put me in touch with people I'd lost contact with.  You can spend too much time on FB, but on the whole, it has increased my in-person contact.

    It has not decreased my in-person contact but it certainly has given us the ability to keep in touch with our family and friends who are scattered around the world. Being able to "talk" with my niece in New Zealand, our cousins in England, and all of our extended family throughout the USA and Canada almost at will is, to us, a blessing.

    Neither thus far, because most of my Facebook friends are family members who live out of state. Since I don't get to see them very often, getting to chat with them online only increases my contact with them and helps keep us connected.
