Someone where people search for flesh-and-blood friends for land-and-sea activities is starting a Humans of New York type page for discussing why social media is so depressing. Another goal: to show the inadequacies of social media in fulfilling a real connection.

No, wait — “in fulfilling a real sense of connection.” Is that the same as fulfilling a real connection? Or is the sense of it, whatever that means, what matters? I can’t tell you.

What I can tell you is that the project is envisioned as a Facebook page.

The underlying noble cause aside, there is enough caught-in-a-loop irony there to make it depressing. I have a real sense people would find a walk in the park ultimately more fulfilling.
