[Twitter] Why Social Media Does Not Bring Us Closer
Contact Ari: Twitter | Email | 978.558.0008. It is a fallacy to suggest social media brings us closer. Take Facebook. It is silly to think that just because 500 million people have Facebook accounts and you befriend everyone in your life that you’re any closer to them on Facebook than off. Unless you can stand in a room surrounded by your 100, 600, or 2000 friends and one by one tell everyone what everyone else is doing in their lives, you fail as their friend. Right? Friends know these traits about their friends. Facebook doesn’t bring us closer. The takeaway is clear.
