Friendship and modularity
How friendships can be described in discrete steps.

The concept

While wondering about why there are flavors in friendships, I got to an understanding that friendship is made of few components. Instead of treating these in a state of flux, we can treat them modular. This could make our life a lot easier. Because, the we can't be everything for everyone (or some people).
This concept builds on the understanding that we believe in a good social circle with various people sharing mutual interests in certain areas.
