On Social Networks


Social networks are successful not because they inherently express who we are. They are successful because they project an image of how we want people to admire us, and ultimately, who we want to become.

right. we get an idea of how people will react and relate to our projected ideal self and therefore predict how popularity suits us.
as long as everyone understands that in social networking, the ‘real’ self will never be revealed and that all identities are superfluous and ethereal like the medium.

sshhh. 🙂
