Describing young folks interested in permaculture, horticulture, botany, fruit exploration, food production, organics, climate change, ecology, community building, plant breeding, networking as Facebookers because they happen to be on a Facebook group is nothing short of phobia.
     Funny, I don't remember mentioning the age of these people.  I 
think it afflicts people of all ages.  Call it phobia, I say many
     people are tied to their computers and cell phones like an 
umbilical cord.  I am not anti-computer, but with some people,
     this need for enormous communications is not normal.  There is some 
interesting content on these facebook sites, but
     it is sometimes disguised among a bunch of chit chat and I 
personally don't want to bother searching for it.

       Maybe, with a few exceptions, most of the interesting people on 
the Nafex forum are basically gardeners first and
       computer geeks last.  They do not walk around their orchards with 
their cell phones glued to their heads.  Their
       postings are strictly about raising fruit and not about daily 
trivia found on facebook sites.
