How has Facebook Changed the Concept of Friends

Posted: Jun 27, 2011 |Comments: 0

]]>

The true concept of friend comes with the feelings of closeness, trust and respect.  The emotional bonding present in the relationship is what makes people become friends.  A friend is someone whom you know well and someone you are very close to not just a stranger whom you met in a strange place or a person who wrote you an e-mail and introduced herself as so and so from a place that is thousand miles away. 

When the internet was invented and social networking became a convenient way to find friends online, everything about friendship has changed.  The concept of friends became just another word and the emotional attachment has been disregarded and set aside. Friends in facebook mean a user who accepts your invitation as a friend online regardless of emotional attachments and knowledge about the person.  

Facebook is now the most popular social networking site online where people of all ages, status and from all corners of the world socialize and find friends.  Your friends in Facebook could be the President of the United States of America if he has a Facebook account; Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, or any celebrity from all corners of the world.  You can call someone you have just added as a friend in your Facebook account as a friend despite the distance between you and the truth that you don’t know who that person is.  You are both strangers to each other but you call each other friend.

]]>

A friend in Facebook is far different from your true friend whom you talk to and whom you want to share the joys and pains in life.  Your true friend is someone you can invite for dinner at home or to a beach party.  Your friends are like family members because of your close bonding.  In Facebook, you can invite your friends too for dinner, parties, shopping or anything but only through the internet.  You can have fun playing games and sharing anything you want but the closeness that you have with your true friends are lacking.

Your friends are people around the community you live.  They could be neighbors or co-workers.  You can talk to them anytime you want and you can hold hands together and hug each other in times of happy times and bad times.  You know their names and where they live.  You know them well just like you know your relatives.  Your Facebook friends are people from all corners of the world.  They could be honest people or they could be liars.  You can never be sure if the names of your friends in Facebook are really their names or they are invented names.  While there are honest people who are also true friends in Facebook, the concept of friend through social networking is different.

Facebook has changed the concept of friend by introducing social networking online to accommodate people from all corners of the world who want to have fun interacting with different types of people.

How to Get a Woman to Fall in Love With You – Too Much Effort Equals Little Reward

When guys go about trying to make a woman fall in love with them, quite often, they end up experiencing something strange. Instead of getting more reward (her affection) for their efforts, it usually goes the other way around. Meaning, the more effort that they put into trying to win over a woman, the more likely it is that she will start to pull away from them or see them as being more of a friend.

****************************************

This is a continuation of Flickr sets that I created in 2010 (shown here), 2009 (shown here), and 2008 (shown here) — which, collectively, illustrate a variety of scenes and people in the small "pocket park" known as Verdi Square, located at 72nd Street and Broadway in New York City’s Upper West Side, right by the 72nd St. IRT subway station.

I typically visit a local gym once or twice a week, and I get there by taking the downtown IRT express from my home (at 96th Street) down to the 72nd Street stop. Whenever possible, I try to schedule an extra 30-60 minutes to sit quietly on one of the park benches, and just watch the flow of people coming in and out of the park — sometimes just passing through, to get from 72nd Street up to 73rd Street, but mostly entering or exiting the subway station.

You see all kinds of people here: students, bums, tourists, office workers, homeless people, retired people, babysitters, children, soldiers, sanitation workers, lovers, friends, dogs, cats, pigeons, and a few things that simply defy description. Sometimes you see the same people over and over again; sometimes they follow a regular pattern at a particular time of the day.

If I focus on the people entering the park at 73rd Street, and walking southwards toward the subway entrance, I typically have five or ten seconds to (a) decide if they’re sufficiently interesting to bother photographing,(b) wait for them to get in a position where I can get a clear shot of them, and (c) focus my camera on them and take several shots, in the hope that at least one or two of them will be well-focused and really interesting.

While you might get the impression that I photograph every single person who moves through this park, it’s actually just the opposite: the vast majority of people that I see here are just not all that interesting. (It’s not that they’re ugly, it’s just that there’s nothing interesting, memorable, or distinctive about them.) Even so, I might well take, say, 200 shots in the space of an hour. But some of them are repetitive or redundant, and others are blurred or out-of-focus, or technically defective in some other way. Of the ones that survive this kind of scrutiny, many turn out to be well-focused, nicely-composed, but … well … just "okay". I’ll keep them on my computer, just in case, but I don’t bother uploading them.

Typically, only about 5-10% of the photos I’ve taken get uploaded to Flickr — e.g., about 10 photos from a one-hour session in which a thousand, or more, people have walked past me. There are some exceptions to this rule of thumb, as was the case with this particular set — but nevertheless, what you’re seeing it is indeed only a tiny, tiny subset of the "real" street scene in New York City. On the other hand, it is reassuring to see that there are at least a few "interesting" people in a city that often has a reputation of being mean, cold, and heartless…v

Invitation to my wedding on December 3, 2010 – we used Facebook to invite guests and though more people joined than are listed on the event page here, they were mainly partners of people who responded here – along with the occasional Facebook refusenik who managed to keep up to date with plans for the wedding by talking to those who were online!

There might have been a glitch with Facebook itself or your internet connection wasn’t fast enough. I would simply wait it out and see if you can go to your friend’s profile at a later time. =)

Question by Lauren: are the friend-finder ads on facebook based on who views your profile the most?
someone told me that… because the people that come up for the ads on the righthand side are always people you’re friends with, but it’s not necessarily people that always comment on my stuff.
