Networks are constituted from technology, which embodies the discussions that mount, intercede, and transfer “love.” The author enlists possible critiques; first is the conclusion that the unified individual, despite its complexities, takes place but the acknowledgement of this proposition cannot be easily translated to largest number of individuals. Next are that of the identity formed with a strong foundation which bears with it responsibility and allegiance; and that of the existence of patterns which neglect to consider the consequences of human actions and verdicts. Other critiques would be the conflation or the fragmentation of love, technology, and community; and that of the exclusion of some members in the system are regarded to loss their historical motivation. In return, the author made some suggestions on how to counter these reviews.
