Ever think to yourself, “Wow, who are these 3,000 friends of mine on Facebook?” I did. I thought to myself, “There is no way I am this popular.” Why would so many people want to be friends with me? I am kind of an asshole, I am needy, and my love handles can throw off any group photo’s composition. I simply have too many friends on Facebook that I do not actually know and this Pokemon-esque “gotta catch ‘em all” style of hoarding friends has elevated to a level of irresponsiblity. It is not far off from the olden days of MySpace where 300,000 friends gave a person bragging rights on the Internet. Today, the bragging is so post-modern, it’s about how many friends you have that you do not even know that makes you the champ in conversation.
