A smaller social network for better friends?
A former Facebook executive aims to turn the world of social networking on its head by limiting the number of friends you can have to 50. So does a smaller, more personal social network make for better friends?
Dave Morin's new company Path aims to enable more effective communications with people who are part of your trusted enclave. It contradicts the ethos of most social networks which includes loose acquaintances and colleagues.
"Facebook is about society and I think the need we are seeing at Path is that people still want to share more and share more openly with the people they trust the most and that is why we put this 50 limit on the service," said Mr Morin.
Would you use a social networking site that limited your connections to 50? Do you think people will want to prioritise more trusted relationships in their online space? Does a smaller, more personal social network make for better friends?
