  1. The more public we make our lives, the less inhibitions we seem to retain. There’s an increasing sense that everything belongs on Facebook, that our friends should know about the most inane, banal parts of our existence because we know about there’s.

    I’m all for intimacy and truth in friendships, but there’s a difference between transparency and vanity. Transparency comes from a place of meekness and candor. It is not “You should know this about me,” (as vanity says) but “You can know this about me.”

    1. M.R., I like how you explained the difference between transparency and vanity, could vs.should. For me, face to face, or at least one on one is where transparency and intimacy thrive. Thanks for starting the discussion.
