Interactive: Mapping the World's Friendships | Geography Education |

"Technology bridges distance and borders. Individuals today can keep in touch with their friends and family in completely new ways — regardless of where they live."

Seth Dixon's insight:

People can be digitally connected with anyone around the world these days, without any limitations by distance or culture.  Yet, by analyzing peoples social networks, it is clear that geographic factors are still a crucial factor in mediating our scoial interactions.  The internet can, but doesn't fully conquer space.
