'Friend' inflation: Facebook popularity categories may boost egos but devalue the term
How did we arrive at this strange state of non-friend friends? Here's how.
A student's popularity has never been a mystery on campus. You see that everyone greets the campus tour guide while the wallflower silently slips by. You know the starting quarterback has a larger social circle than the treasurer of the biology club.
Comment: More terms:
- The Top Friend application.
- Popularity ranking.
- "I Have An Entourage."
- BFF = "Best Friends Forever"
Observation: People need real community, and it will not be found on the Internet, in a bar, or anywhere outside of a relationship with Christ. That relationship enables genuine community with others of God's family!
