You see, death from cancer due to smoking obviously means you ain't using Facebook no more. So this is a ruse to get you to continue using Facebook! XD

yup that's a nice thing though peers can impact behavior and may not liking you smoking but what if it backfired. smoking is very addicting and it depends on the people if their willing to quit it or not plus it's really hard to quit. there are so many alternatives on making you not to smoke and one of it is keeping yourself busy, facebook already done it's part for most of us spends some time on facebook and adding something like this it's a reaaly good thing. well i do hope they come up with something to even lessen smoking.
