By Samantha Chabot True friendship is one of the most important things in your life and it’s being ruined by social media. Social media allows friendship to be a click of a button. Someone could have a million ‘friends’ on Facebook, but, out of those, how many are genuine friends? Almost every kid and adult has either a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account. You might ask what is wrong, why is it bad? On someone’s birthday a person might get a text or tweet of “Happy Birthday” but what does it mean? You don’t put any effort in saying it. The person gets so happy that she got a million texts that say “Happy Birthday” but, in the real world, did any one of them make an effort to say it in person? Social media takes away reality and people along with it.
