Found on Facebook: Empathy

This article talks about how the meaning of empathy has changed. Empathy is portrayed differently online and its getting noticed. The author mentions Sherry Turkle’s “Reclaiming Conversation” book that has a lot of research on this area. Social media has changed the way conversations occur. It seems to be making people closer in a sense-when people disclose information about themselves online it makes others feel closer to them even if they really aren’t.
