"I think for many people both Facebook and Twitter function as the companion or close friend they don’t have, or an idealized one who cares about their every comment and whim. When people post such things as “I’m really in the mood for a hamburger” it's easy to imagine they’re sending those messages out to a someone who they want to believe actually cares that they’re in the mood for a burger. However we all know such loving concerned friends are extremely rare. So like the child who creates an imaginary friend, these posters send their messages to an idealized (but imaginary) grown up someone who they wish was out there, listening."
