We’re not ones to usually endorse the copy and paste social media posts, considering they’re really just the evolution of the chain email.
This, however, is different, as the message it sends is one that resonates with all of us.
"I knew a lot of you from before facebook existed so, I do care about you or I would not have you as a friend. I'm doing this once and once only, so now's your chance.... It occurs to me that for each and every one of you on my friends list, I catch myself looking at your pictures, sharing jokes and news, as well as support during good and bad times. I am also happy to have you among my friends. We will see who will take the time to read this message until the end. If you appreciate your friends from all over the world, go ahead and copy this into your status too, even if it's just for a minute. I'm going to be watching to see who takes care of the friendship, just like me. Thank you all for being a part of my life. Copy and paste please, don't share. If no one reads my wall, this should be a short experiment. This is a Facebook game to see who reads and who just scrolls. So, if you read this, leave one word on how we met. Only one word, then copy this to your wall so I can leave a word."
How would you describe meeting your Facebook friends in one word? This sort of thinking could help us understand who our true friends are, and who are merely social media acquaintances.
Try out this experiment with your friends and see what sort of results you come across!
