How do Facebook, Twitter, and social media affect your friendships outside of the internet?
I graduated from elementary school, a lot of my friends had gone to different schools than me. A lot of my friendships I had in fifth grade are now forgotten because I have not seen many of my friends in years. There are a few exceptions, however. One of my best friends has been able to stay in touch with me because we often play video games online together. While I have not heard from many of my old friends in forever, I still hear from one of them almost every day thanks to social media.
