Automated Relationships

Friendships have become a numbers game.  We have automated our friendships so that the app is now managing our relationships.  The app will send you a thank you e mail and even tweet our ideas for us.  We are gaming the numbers so that we can have more friends and followers and that in turn gives us credibility.

I am not against automated relationships.  It works, but I like interacting with live people.  It doesn’t take to long to figure out who’s really there or not.  But that also means that it doesn’t take too long to figure out who to ignore because no one is there.

An automated conversation is begging to be ignored.  We really do need to make relationships human again and real.
