Matthew Kulesza has embarked on an anxiety-inducing tour of his 1,088 Facebook friends for coffee dates. The 28-year-old Australian digital strategist is chronicling the social experiment on his Tumblr, 1,000+ Coffees and, obviously, on Facebook.
Kulesza described the three-year plan as an “exercise in remembering to socialize with and get to know people outside of the ‘book. In an interview with news.com.au, he admitted that he “obviously” doesn’t know all 1,000 friends so he reasoned this would be a good excuse to change that.
“The point of the project is to see who these people actually are and get to know them,” he said. “It’s amazing to see how interesting everyone can be if you make the effort and reach out. Everyone has incredible stories to tell.”
