Study indicates Facebook makes you more sociable

(CNN) - A study seems to indicate that Facebook makes us more sociable. 
 
According to the study of 900 current and recent graduates, the social network gives people chances to show friendship and community in new ways.

47% of those surveyed say Facebook is very important to stay in touch with distant friends, and 35% say the same for far off family.

Genders tend to use Facebook differently.

Men tend to politicize more while women are more likely to show affection.
