Are online friends real friends?
Today, we can make friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instragram and etc but how much can you trust your online friends which you don't even see personally. Are this people be count on? Are they real?
Friends are always true, those who smile in front of you can't be Ur best friends and those who giving their piece of mind are not Ur enemies.... but be sure the closest person knows Ur weakest point!
The answer is "it depends on the person". I've spent many years meeting new people via the internet - chat rooms, social networks, and places like here at HP. Some of those people have become friends I can trust and others I don't trust. Sure, people can hide behind the anonymity and end up doing terrible things, yet they can also be as real as the people I meet physically.
No. We are only dealing with concepts. If the words suggest kindness, some assume friendship. If the words, appear offensive or mean, the judgement is negative. As long as the words on the screen appear kind, the illusion of friendship remains until one or the other drops out, never returns or just disappears from the website.
How can you say that we are just dealing with the concept if what we show on SMS are the real attitude we possessed. You can't say its "No" for there are some proof that it can happen.
Outside of words, you don't really know the truth, or what's on the other side. If you meet in person, you can make a better evaluation. It's like making a spirit friend. Spirits may appear good, but who really knows? Words are all you have online.
I don't make friends like this for that reason. I keep these profiles full of only people I know because if I don't know them personally generally they don't make very good friends.

Do you think facebook is a nice place to share views with your online friends?For example if you want to buy a new laptop so would you talk and get recommendations from your online friends before getting forth to buy one or would you go to the market and check on your own and not talk to anyone.
