Today with the times that run, technology seems to have a fundamental role in everything we do…and especially, thanks to it, we can make new friends, and relationships worldwide. Virtual friendship presents positive elements, such as: having the opportunity to know if a friend is sincere, however, it also has negative aspects, because the people you meet online don’t always have good intentions. There are lots of pedophiles hiding behind false profiles, and this can be dangerous for children who are less aware of what they do and can’t look after themselves, the way adults do.
Today on the news, you hear so much news of guys who after doing several online experiences are followed and framed by these bad people, risking most of the time even their lives. Surely most people, prefer to see friends in real life because the majority of the time virtual friendships prove to be false, they are not friends you can always count on. For very warm and outgoing people, it would be difficult to stay in touch with a friend only via the web, and thus always being far away from him. On the contrary for more shy people, making friends online could be one of the best experiences of life, as it can help them break out of their shells. To end off, people who try and manage to maintain a healthy friendship online should be admired, despite this, it’s not hard to understand those who prefer using technology to do other things as useful, and profitable as online friendships.
