Well I agree to some of your points and i feel at some point of time it becomes redundant and boring unless someone is really good at striking conversation.

On the other hand when you ask people to join on FB or whatsapp, there is a sense of consciousness that they are no longer strangers and they know a bit about you now. It is my personal experience but also from students I work with when they share their experiences.

I would say personality is big part of it:
