Psycho Chat with Dominique Cardon

Are our online friendships real? Dominique Cardon was invited to the chatroom to answer reader questions on Tuesday 21 May at 6 pm.

Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Instagram... We have lots of friends these days! Teenagers often have easily over 400 friends on their Facebook profiles. What should we think of these virtual friendships? Are they real? Reliable? Illusory? If social networks provide an opportunity to construct an image (and to change it...), what should we think of the links we have with our "friends"? And without social networks, would we have the time and the resources to keep up real friendships which we value?
