word:Friending

“friending” in cyberspace is a totally foreign concept. anonymity and lack of verification of someone prevents us from truly believing that someone is who they say is.

Also, while “friending” in real life is a long and personal process, someone “becomes” a friend due to shared experiences and mutual trust. In cyberspace, “friending” comes first, before any meaningful communication can be accomplished, the trust has to be established later.

This is backwards!
