How do you know this person?

How do I know this person? Through the Web!: Jon makes an interesting point here. There’s a whole category of people that you “know” via the Net only. You may have talked to them on the phone or met them in person, but the Web is “where” you met them.

Like other social applications, Facebook wants to know how you’re connected to people. So it asks: “How do you know this person?” and presents these choices […] The choice I usually want — “Through the Web” — isn’t available.
