use them for what part of benefiting the human race?

Face Book?
Social Networking?
Web 2.0?
for increasing the literacy of the human race?
for bringing the world together and destroying war and hatred?
for making the world such a nicer and safer place to live in?
enhancing the worlds culture?
enhancing true knowledge?
