facebook as self-branding
this is a great article in time about facebook. it reminded me of all the things i love and hate about facebook -- especially the paragraph about it being a self-branding tool for people to don their best, rather than true, flawed selves. it also made me realize how vastly different other certain social networking sites are, and how these sites will emerge as great forces that, unlike facebook which reduces daily contact to pokes and posts on a wall, will build upon our inherent needs and emotions to meet people and build true friendships offline and face-to-face.
