Facebook makes us more sociable

A study from the University of Texas seems to indicate that Facebook makes us more sociable. According to the study of 900 current and recent graduates, the social network gives people chances to show friendship and community in new ways.

Of those surveyed, 47 percent say Facebook is very important to stay in touch with distant friends, and 35 percent say the same for far off family.

Fenders tend to use Facebook differently. Men tend to politicize more, and women are more likely to show affection.

Attached is a video stream of that story plus our review of our "behind the scenes" week on the News First 5 Facebook page.
