My friend has put his professional degree at the tail end of his display name on gtalk! A lot of hard work has fuelled the acquisition of this professional degree. There are no doubts in my mind regarding this. But why does he have to constantly display it in an informal environment? A curious me quizzed him.
He explained the theory behind it! He had signed up on Orkut a while back. After browsing for friends, he found his old classmates on the social networking site. He sent them invites through the social networking site. A majority of his old classmates did not accept his invite. One day, he added his professional degree to his display name and also updated the current location rightfully to the Big Apple. Voila! His circle of friends increased dramatically from then on. The earlier hesitant ones added him as a friend.
Does professional degree and location matter in friendship? I’m still not convinced! What about you?
