In my use of social media, I've always thought of this as 'lives lived in parallel'. Like when you see someone you know in the background of a photo, totally out of context. Have you read Robin Sloan's short story 'Last Beautiful'? Seems thematically relevant.


On a similar note, I also liked Venkat's blog essay, 'The World is Small and Life is Long'.
