. . .how do you talk about your online "friends" with your friends IRL? Do you refer to someone you follow on twitter as a friend? Or do you go through the long explanation:
"well, I'm on twitter, and there's this guy who does something with computers and he said. . ."
or do you say:
"my friend, Butch said snow leopard is awesome" ??
It gets confusing. . .but I am selective about the people I follow - they are a friend IRL or we share similar interests, or I am interested in what they do or what they have to say. . .so to me - they are my "friend".
Perhaps not someone I wouldshare my inner-most thoughts with. . .but they are an active member of the circle of my life.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on your online circle of acquaintances. . .and if you're on twitter look me up!
catch you soon -
