…an interesting post in the Economist on Facebooks and the number of friends a human being can maintain at one time.  Points to research about how many people we can network with, and works to an intersting distinction between “networking” and “broadcasting.”  Also, this is from some time ago, but Michael Gerson published in the Washington Post a provocative (and exceedingly well written) essay on Facebook and friendship. Gerson explores the relationship between self-revelation and real friendship in an intelligent and moving way, and this essay is most definately worth a read.
