Friends or friends?

There's virtual reality.

Then there's augmented reality.

This cartoon illustrates distorted reality.

A Facebook friend, in contrast to a friend you can easily reach out and touch, is unlikely to come help you change a tire, hand you a tissue or bring over dinner and a movie.

Just like television, the Internet can cause us to limit our perspective to the size of our monitor screen.
