Can I be your friend?

Although it's just an advertisement, this three minute video manages to succinctly ask all of those currently submitting their lives to social networking to take a closer look at the acceptability of their actions.

As humorous as the video is, it is also slightly unfair; the online by its very nature has different social norms that don't apply in real life - that's exactly its value. I also have doubts regarding exactly how promiscuous people are in making friends.

But still, it does make a good point and one that needs to be heeded soon. The irony of course is that it'll be posted and socially networked out of existence, but such is the nature of these things.

Found on @SumayyaIsmail's twitter feed here.
