Do you think genuine friendships are becoming rare, because of the way we’ve learned to treat social media friends, and if so, here’s what we can do…Social media has dramatically changed the idea of friends. You friend someone by simply clicking a button. Every day, your number of friends grows. You never meet face to face and you may not say a word directly to them.
