For me, the most interesting issue here is my Facebook, my Twitter, my Youtube and my blogging alter the people who would be in the 100-200 folks that I am capable of knowing and interacting with regularly throughout life. As noted in the video, this is called the Dunbar Number.
Because of these social media, there are folks who I have never actually met in person who will be a part of the limit of people “in my life”. Also, there are folks I have met but who over time will have “slipped” out of my life except now they are always popping up on my timeline “liking” a post and staying within that 100-200 acquaintances.
