Defining Social Relationships

There is a reason web sites find it difficult to define social relationships.  On Facebook you need to be a former co-worker, lover, whatever to categorize someone.

But real life relationships don’t fit into tidy little boxes.

Currently I have a friend that is also a mentor, who is also a consultant working for me (through my client), and this friend is also a client of mine.  All at the same time.

Define that relationship on the “social graph”.

Social networking is hard.
