> "I wish there was an app to help me connect to my niece" is a really fucking weird vibe.

It's not so weird. Facebook is essentially the same folly.

Perhaps you meant sad.

I feel like Facebook used correctly is more like social broadcasting, updating your entire social circle on your goings-on, alongside messenger and WhatsApp for one-to-one constant contact. Of course, Facebook used wrong is a similar weird vibe when you pretend you have friends because you constantly "like" the statuses of people you used to be close with.
