Link for Piece on Facebook and Intimacy (Thanks to Barbara Emanuele)

Barbara sent this really interesting New York Times article on intimacy, social relations, and Facebook that might spark class discussion on social media and technology.

I was surprised by the lack of investment in Facebook a lot of my younger students expressed this semester. I’m not sure if this is a larger trend or just happened to be this class, but I now really want to learn more about their use of social media. I think this article could really help facilitate that discussion.
