A court in Florida just ruled that your Facebook friends aren't ACTUALLY your real friends. It came up because a judge was ruling on a case where one of the attorneys was her Facebook friend even though they barely knew each other . . . and she successfully argued that it wasn't a conflict of interest.
And an appeals court just sided with her last week, and said that Facebook friends AREN'T your real friends. In the opinion, they wrote, quote, "Acceptance as a Facebook 'friend' may well once have given the impression of close friendship and affiliation. Currently, however, the degree of intimacy among Facebook 'friends' varies greatly."
