    Thoughtful article – really interesting video.

    I agree that the pervasive nature of social media has had a distinct impact how we develop relationships. Although they’re different, I’d argue the value of online relationships (however fleeting) are equal to offline interactions of the same context.

    Social media and other online networks have created a new ‘third place’ where we naturally congregate. The dangerous difference which you’ve highlighted is the convenience of dipping in and out, whenever and wherever we want. This has made it extremely difficult to control our usage and self moderate. Whereas as heading down to a local youth club or pub requires effort, quickly logging onto Facebook via your smartphone is effortless.
