A new poll suggests about one-quarter of Canadians believe Facebook plays a more negative than positive role.
Should we be surprised? Social media aren't for everyone, and even among users there are doubters.
The Harris/Decima poll for The Canadian Press found a bit of an age gap in the perception of Facebook --- the older you were, the more likely you were to feel negatively. But, for a service with such rapid growth and such enigmatic qualities (that is, a new wrinkle seemingly each week to its offerings), I thought the poll indicated pretty strong acceptance. About 40 per cent --- and about three-quarters of users --- felt it made a more positive than negative contribution.
