Online Friends or Real Friends?
Let’s face it. Social media has almost taken over our lives! It has become so integrated with our daily lives that we can’t sit still for minutes without checking our phones to find out what’s the latest on our newsfeed i.e: instastories, Facebook. We take stock of people’s respond by checking views/likes/comments count on our post. We feel our online friends understand us, when such feedback is rendered.

Social platforms create the opportunity for instant feedback and validation, when we’re putting our questions or suggestions out there. But are their feedback genuine enough? Can their advice be a valid guide? We tend to pour our hearts out on social media - with rants, dedication, opinions - hoping we’re heard. We want to be heard. But are we really heard? Are they really our friends? Will it come back to hurt us? Does anyone pick up the phone and meet up to talk things through these days?
