Digital Ties

This is a really excellent article entitled In the World of Facebook from the NYRB on the history Facebook and possible implications of Facebook Connect and their advertising processes. Directly related to the interpersonal time and energy we invest into sites like Facebook is an article from NPR Digital Tears: Breakups And Social Networks examining the problem of when relationships end the impact not just on the individual but also on both individual's networks of people. Where these networks used to be simply physical ending relationships now also need to deal with the problem of severing electronic ties.
