With the era of social networking, keeping in touch with friends is much easier. However it feels a little emptier since it lacks interaction. Talking to someone in person is much better than typing words in a chat box or in a social networking platform, poking lacks the same feeling when done personally.
Take this picture for example.
There are limits to what you can do over a social network and I find it funny how the level of interaction in a social network is equated by some as personal interaction when it lacks that certain human touch and emotion.
A social networking site is a good way to keep in touch with your friends, especially those who are in other countries or very far places. However when you see them often or at least you could go to them to catch up with their life, why do you still need to log-in just to do those?
It would be better even if you call them or even send a text message. Maybe meet them up and catch up with their lives. Better yet make up for the time you haven’t seen each other for a long time.
It’s really hard especially if you don’t see your friends everyday and that is just what’s happening to me. I miss the people who ride the same wave of thoughts as I am without having to try to understand to know what we are talking about.
It’s hard not to have a friend but it is harder when you pretend that you don’t need one. Yeah I just miss you all. Let’s meet up soon. 🙂
