By Raquel Botton Social media affects quality of true friendship. But how? One time, I decided to go on Instagram. I saw one of my friends posted a picture with a few of my other friends. When I saw that picture, it made me jealous. I decided not to go on Instagram anymore because I realized that, every time I went on it, I always wanted what everyone else had. Social media makes a person addicted to likes and followers and many more unproductive things. On social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, you’re gaining “friends”. But, in real life how many of those people are really your friends? It’s better to invest in 1 friendship than 100 people and end up with zero friends.
