Again, not really sure what this has to do with social media. Perhaps I can draw a connection to the fact that social media and technology create barriers between human interactions and can, in a way, completely rob people of the “human moment.” You have a lot of “friends” on Facebook, but do you actually care about them? Do you actually know all of them? Does it matter?
This photographer paired complete strangers together and asked them to act like family. The results are surprising. Some photographs show the true compassion that humans, in general, can have for each other. (The others are really awkward.)
