Robin Dunbar talks at the RSA about online friends vs’ real friends… a great articulation of what we are all surely aware of – that the evolution of what we call ‘relationships’ in the social media age is ambiguous, and perhaps not that healthy, that the quality of your relationships relates to the amount of time you spend with these people, and perhaps 150 is about the limit of useful relationships anyone can have at one time.

Thanks to Martin K for the heads up on this.
