I feel like I do know you after 10 years of interacting in various ways online. :-) Which is kind of funny, come to think of it - it's the same sense of familiarity that you get from seeing the same neighborhood faces and making small talk in the grocery store year after year!


I like small talk. Life gets tendentious when people feel like they need to pontificate all the time. And I really like the "hanging out" feeling of Facebook -- I live far away from a lot of my friends, so the feeling of being able to drop is is cheering to me. I even like knowing what people are eating!


I agree Mrs. Darwin, small talk is good. It's light and fun and if I need pontification, I can flip on the news.
