The significance of “Dunbar’s Number” in the age of social media

Understanding Dunbar’s Number

“British anthropologist Robin Dunbar theorized that a typical person can’t easily have more than 150 people in his tribe.

After 150 friends and fellow citizens we cannot keep track.It is too complicated.”

In the modern age of social media where we have virtual friends and connections it is common to have 1000 connections showing how superficial we can get in the age of social media.

True human bonds is the way to go in the modern age since it is the basic essence of human beings.
