Do you agree?

Social networks (online) are often more diverse than our “real world” networks.

It may appear that you have a fairly diverse group of friends on FB, while in real life, you interact with a bunch of people from a similar social and cultural background.

Social networks online create opportunity to connect outside of your comfort zone.  We are able to witness the same “human” elements on everyone’s FB page.

Your Black friend’s FB isn’t all that different from your Asian friend –  baby pics, head cold complaints, financial issues, article sharing, etc.

We are all so similar when you get down to the base ingredients of how we spend our days.

The computer/mobile screen allows for a more global community to exist.
