Not that those "keeping in touch" interactions don't still carry a benefit, even for someone who has far exceeded them.
"Social media makes things more accessible, so you know more," Hollander said. "But I don't necessarily think that helps or hurts friendships; it's just that you have access to people, so it's better. I can't say that my best friend from kindergarten, who I still adore, I don't think we're better friends because of Facebook. But it's great for me because I get to see her kids growing up."
As for digital dualism, she says social media are just "a different way to communicate, not a different kind of relationship. Everybody wants to talk about these two different worlds -- virtual and real life -- but I don't think they're that separate."
Hollander has already displayed her portrait project at the Portland Museum of Art and recently confirmed a show at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. And yes, she's on Facebook.
