New Delhi: Facebook, over the past few years, has changed the conception of people about how we connect to each other. Its growing popularity means that we no longer are confined to face-to-face interaction, but see ours and others in the number of people in ‘friends list.' A simple click on the ‘unfriend' option makes it easy to cut ties with someone who you have been very close to. The more people in your friends list, the more popular you are perceived to be.
Even in the friends list, we can segregate people into different categories, based on our closeness and level of formality with them. We have ‘family', ‘best friends', ‘not-so-close friends', ‘relatives' and‘work colleagues' lists. If due to geographical barriers, you cannot physically ‘poke a friend', you can still do so in the world of Facebook and this subtle cue is somehow less offending in the virtual world. Facebook has altogether put a new meaning on the world of ‘vurtual friendship' where it doesn't matter whether you have met the other person or not..
Here's a look at some quick facts interesting and shocking facts about the popular social network.
