You're not expected to read the above diatribe, I'm sure you've seen something at least similar to this on any various social media platforms. It is being used as an example of a user engaging on a social media platform as if it were a truthful representation of social life. When you see posts like these awkwardly juxtaposed on a platform like Facebook the fallacy is reveal that it is nothing more than a manufactured reality, a doctored representation of a community.
"Do we unconsciously fear (or long for) the day when our vital infrastructure breaks down and we really need each other? Or should we read this Simulacrum of the Social as an organized agony over the loss of community after the fragmentation of family, marriage, and friendship? Why do we assemble these ever-growing collections of contacts? Is the Other, relabeled as "friend", nothing more than a future customer or business partner?"
