Online Friends As Collectibles.. ala Garbage Pail Kids

By October 23, 2008 No Comments

Fantastic article written by Scott Brown on Wired.com about the ‘friend’ phenomenon in social networking. My favorite excerpt:

But the more Friends you have, the less they’re worth—and, more to the point, the less human they are. People become mere collectibles, like Garbage Pail Kids. And call me a buzz kill, but I don’t want to be anyone’s Potty Scotty.

Personally, I always wanted to be someone’s New Wave Dave.
