From the Torah on Facebook – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Olga Tawil Friendship through social media has changed over the years. Social media can lower your self esteem. When you see profiles with more followers than you, you feel less important. You feel bad that you aren’t as popular or don’t have as many friends. But, that’s not true. Most friends on social media are fake and many of them you don’t even know at all. So, when you see someone with many followers, most of them aren’t their true friends. True friends are friends who are kind and care about you and not people who push the ‘follow’ button. People with fake friends will never know how it feels to have real friends. If you don’t put in your effort to make friends, then you never really know who they are and how it feels to have true friends. On social media, you see only what’s on the outside and not the person’s personality.
