Above 150 Friends Is Nothing More Than Social Media Status - An Interview With Professor Robin DunbarWritten by Martina Advaney
What is the “Dunbar Number”? Named after the acclaimed Professor Robin Dunbar, the Dunbar Number holds that irrespective of our socio-economic class, the greatest number of active social relationships we can sustain is 150. Regardless also of the means of cultivating relationships, it would appear that following thousands of people on social media is altogether unimportant in terms of real social relationships since the actual number of such ‘relationships’ cannot exceed 150. Professor Dunbar has given an exclusive interview to Youth Time magazine.
German artist Cornelia Konrads has exhibited her work in many countries apart from Germany. Her works are unexampled, specific to the locales she chooses, and possessed of a unique vibe which gives viewers the impression that they are suspended in the air. We are fortunate to have obtained an interview with her given her extremely busy schedule.
