Faces, not friends

Mint Columnist S Mitra Columnist has an interesting account of her first few weeks on Facebook.

The first week was exciting, as it is with most people, all those bells and whistles and all, but her brother complained he had to ‘sanitize’ his Facebook page because his sister was also a member.

The second week, she scoured the site, looking at other people’s information -devouring obscure personal details, people's assessments of relationships and answering personal questions from her ‘long lost’ friends – 'when did you get married?' and assorted other typical questions. No doubt Facebook demands so much of your time. It wants to be the internet. Huh?

Ms. Kalita concludes,
Clearly, these people are not my friends.

They perhaps were part of my life once upon a time and then we moved on to new chapters, new books even.

Why engage, pretend, dishonor true friendship?


Ms. Kalita decided to send most of her new found friends to her blog instead of wasting any more time answering questions and as for real friends,

I hope they still make phone calls.
I hope people still email when they have something important to share.
