It’s a common misconception that friendships are made in person, but that’s not the case, according to social media expert John Deere.
In his new book, “The Great American Friend,” the social media industry consultant and speaker talks about the different ways people interact online, and the different types of friends.
He shares the wisdom of some of his favorite friendships and offers tips for those looking to forge lasting connections.
“I want to be clear that these are all friendships.
There’s no one ‘right way to do it,'” Deere said in an interview with the Daily News.
“You don’t have to be in a relationship to be friendless, and I don’t think people know that.”
The best way to get the most out of social media is to have a clear vision and plan for who you’re spending your time with and what your priorities are, Deere advised.
“If you want to create the best friends, you have to make sure that they have a plan for you to be your best friend and you’re not just spending time with them because you’re interested in them or you want a relationship with them,” Deere told the Daily.
“That’s how you get to the best friendship.”
Deere said that even though friends may appear online, they’re more than that.
“When I go out and I see people, there’s a little bit of the person behind the profile,” Deke said.
“It’s like a character in a film, but they’re not really there.
They’re there to be there for the story.
And I think the reason they’re there is because they’re friends.”
The Great America Friend offers advice for anyone looking to build the best friendships online.
“Friends are people, and when you’re in a group, there are people who are going to be supportive and happy to help you out, but if you’re trying to have meaningful friendships, you’re going to need people who can be open to that,” Deek said.
“You have to learn to be honest about your feelings and not try to hide them or say they’re ‘all in the game,'” Deek added.
“Instead, make sure you talk about it openly and honestly.”
You can also reach out to friends through the app and ask questions and offer support if they need it, Deek says.
