A Good Way to Make Friends

In the past, friendships were greatly limited by the constraints of time, space and attention; now social networking is freeing us from these. It allows you to find and rediscover friends so you are less likely to fall out of touch. Social networking also creates an environment that allows you to interact easily with others: you can share photos, videos, and links. The effect of this is profound—users of social networking websites have larger, more diverse social circles, online and offline. This outcome comes at no cost to one’s closest relationships, which are maintained in person and over the phone. Instead, the hour that the average user spends each day socialising on the internet comes at the expense of less social activities, such as the three or so hours a day the average person spends watching television.[/one_half]

Keep It Real

Whilst social networking promises to allow you to make large numbers of new friends all around the world, the reality is different. There is a limit—roughly 150—on the number of people we can have a meaningful relationship with and the quality of relationships depends on the amount of time you invest in them. Also, perhaps curiously, the greatest asset of social networking is also its greatest drawback. It allows you to maintain relationships with existing friends even if they have moved to the other side of the world. In one sense, that’s a good thing. But it also has a downside. Continuing to invest in old friends despite no longer being able to see them invariably means that you have less time to make new friends where you live. Meaningful relationships are about doing things with people, face-to-face; they are not about not clinging on to old friendships that will eventually fade anyway.[/one_half_last]
