Couldn't have said it better myself.

Unfortunately, when it comes to computer communication, whether it's an email or through facebook, it is very easy to ignore it and just say to yourself "I'll respond later". Later turns into never because people simply forget. I don't think that they are too busy, they are just not attentive enough towards others.

I think people are really showing their colors and how much they really value you through this type of communication. I also think that we are slowly forgetting common courtesy.

You cannot control others, such is life. If they don't respond, it's their own business.
