Why So Few Friends
It's surprising how many times my students, clients and friends ask me why I have very few friends on Facebook. They even play the role to perfection by wearing a gloomy and sympathetic face when they look at me and say "So sad to hear that you don't have that many friends online". It's a different thing that in the real world I have double or triple the number of friends and connections than what they have "online".
It amazes me how they "actually" consider themselves popular just because they have something like 333 friends on Facebook or over 200 connections on LinkedIn. What's even more amusing is the deterioration of their communication skills over the last 5 years.
I know most of my friends and colleagues for more than five years and it shocks me to know how difficult it has become for them to carry on a conversation with someone online (or offline). It seems like the so-called popular ones (500 friends or more on Facebook) are the ones who have totally lost their ability to communicate well with other people.
