Friends vs Facebook Friends
I think social media has created confusion on what the word “friend” means. Let me try to make it clearer.
A Facebook friend is someone who likes and comments on your posts. Who tags you when they upload a photo of you.
A Facebook friend thinks that by following your profile means that they are actively involved in your life.
A Facebook friend is someone who tells you “Happy Birthday” on your wall, but only when Facebook tells them that it is your birthday.
A Facebook friend is someone who you might have been close to earlier in your life but you have moved apart from.
A Facebook friend is someone who was really your friend once and promised to stay your friend forever no matter what, promised that you will never lose touch.
A friend is someone who really cares about you and makes time for you. They will actually call you or message you or even come over to your house.
A friend is someone who knows your birthday and that you hate receiving flowers or plants as gifts.
A friend is someone who accepts you for who you are, but are not afraid to tell you when you are wrong.
A friend is someone who won’t reject or unfriend you.
So, you can just be my Facebook Friend or you can be my real friend. The choice is yours.
