There are more ways to communicate than online, though. What did your family do before the internet? I know that my family communicates through other means as well, including (but not limited to) paying physical visits. Are you really arguing that if Facebook were to vanish, all the families in the Philippines (or anywhere else) would collapse because the family members would no longer be able to communicate?
