There is vaguely sinister when groups use facebook as their platform for social justice actions. I know there is the whole concept of meeting people where they are, but it does cut out access from the small group of people who haven't bothered to sign up for it.

For example, Food Not Bombs Norfolk has a facebook page, but you can only look at it and find out what they are doing if you are on facebook. This seems deeply counterproductive. There is not even a non-facebook email.

Though more useful than the Food Not Bombs main page, which lists a defunct email address and a MySpace page!

Should any group (or any idivdual) really be relying exclusively on Facebook? You already know the answer.
