Increasingly.

Your Facebook identity can be used to fire, convict, harrass or
discriminate against you.

Hi,

Define reality. It's subjective and there are plenty of people who's
social structure (friend-to-friend, dating, etc) is determined by
their Facebook connections and communications. Data and things virtual
are becoming reality for those people.

Now, the experiential quality of that reality is a different question
altogether.
