Does a huge number of online-society friends mean that one really has THAT number of friends? I don’t think so. It is not uncommon for us to add up as many persons as we can as our online friends just because of their face value. This is a misconception about online societies – that authentic friendships come with the higher number of friends. People today do not understand that these societies are gifts giving us the opportunity to have genuine dialogues, and thus, genuine friendships.
