The question is what Facebook or similar tools are really good for...

I am "old school" and talk to people directly (through mail) and even sometimes face-to-face, if I think they should know something. For this purpose, the old fashioned communication tools like e-mail, forums, web pages, wikis, blogs are good enough and keep me in (better)control over what I tell whom…

And, I don't feel that I am the center of the world, that I need thousands of "friends" I don't even know…

So if some friend isn't talking to me any more and just referring to his/her Facebook or Twitter entries and asks me to follow, I don't regard that person as being important for my life any more if they are not willing to communicate with me directly... Fortunately that does not happen often with my friends.

Only that I started to install it: http://friendica.openphoenux.org but failed to find time to complete the configuration. Obviously it isn't important at all :)

In summary it is a discussion of how to connect members of this community who share some interests and values and knowledge.

Well, the community currently only has this e-mail list, some web pages (wiki) and a "Stammtisch" in Munich. And projects. Basically this could be enough - if used intensively. But a Forum interface would be nice IMHO (and was discussed before - at least in the form of a Forum-like interface to this mailing list).
