I think the biggest thing about Facebook is the people search option that Levinson discusses. If you have Facebook there is almost no place to hide. While your name might not be searchable an experienced searcher can flip through pictures on other peoples' pages until they find you. They can go through your friends, family or interests until they get a match. Its perfect in the college setting, where they are just so many kids and perhaps little interactions in class. The dream girl in the front row can always be admired through Facebook, even if she ignores you in class! Plus. you have the advantage of finding out her likes and dislikes even before approaching her.
