The essay “Your Social Life: Are You a Fox or a Hedgehog?” is written by Pamela Haag and can be found on pages 398-400. Haag discusses in her essay the two types of social groups: foxes, and hedgehogs. The generations before social media would be, mostly, classified as hedgehogs and the generations after social media would be, mostly, classified as foxes. Foxes have broad friend bases but shallow relationships. On the other hand, hedgehogs have narrow friend bases and deep relationships with more meaning. Social media has created the popularity of many meaningless relationships diminishing the number of true connections among people.
