The Cost of a Social Network

Forget for a moment that the new Facebook homepage sucks.

I’ve been thinking, social networks cost money. Well, to grow them costs money. Sure you have a number of school/university friends you can easily add, but after that.. totally new friends usually involve some social event. A drink, a dinner, a party.

Hmm.. what would that average be: R50 per new connection?

Then again, you would be spending that money anyway, at least now you have something to show for all those beers you had.
