This may sound stupid but it's true.

So how can I convince my elder sister (18 3/4) that I am right in this thing (me 16 just over). She thinks that Facebook is the most reliable source of relationship information. One day I told her(kinda accidentally) that I have a girlfriend and she went and checked it out on Facebook. Me and my girl hadn't marked in on Facebook so she said to me that I am not in a relationship cause Facebook says so. So I asked her if she actually trusted Facebook more than me. Well she said ''In these things I trust it more than you.''. I am not the most likely person to have a girlfriend so she obviously thought that I was lying. How can I convince her that Facebook isn't the most reliable source on the internet?

It's like that TV commercial for car insurance: "You can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true." There ARE people who actually believe that, either about certain sites, or about the Internet in general.

She's been hit with the 'Facebook obession'. She's too far in for you to help her. Sorry, but I guess you are out of luck

Your poor sister is deluded. I have lived a long life so far and without Facebook.

Your sister needs therapy....convince her of that first.

Why do you care if she believes you or not? You know what the truth is, so what does it matter? Just curious.
