“Evolving socially” with new ways of collaboration

Chapter 4 mentions that we are growing socially with the ability to have our social networks online, with the help of web applications and tools.  I think that it helps, but are we really evolving?  I know my parents know all of their friends, even acquaintances, by name.  Sometimes I look at my facebook friends list and say “Who they hell is that?”  If these systems don’t help me memorize or remember someone’s name, how can I be evolving?  In this sense, it seems like a step back.  What do you guys think?
