This week we’re discussing parasocial relationships, what they are and how this relatively new social phenomenon has shaped the interactions we have online. Maybe you feel a real affinity to Taylor, perhaps Kim feels like your bestie or you might be a committed member of the Beehive. It may be ebven closer to home than that, maybe you simply feel a lot closer to an old childhood friend than you really are. We’ve all encountered parasocial relationships in one way and social media certainly amplifies them. But are they totally harmless or do they encourage us to believe we’re entitled to everyone’s inner thoughts?
