    IMO, having “friends” on Facebook can never be equivalent to having friends one physically meets and interacts with. That’s because even if one shares broad and/or deep self-disclosure with one another in written form, one has still not disclosed oneself in terms of how one is in person, which is also part of oneself.

    It’s possible the most winning communicator in writing is socially awkward or has annoying mannerisms. This is part of oneself as well, but when one allows oneself to show this part of oneself (until one overcomes social awkwardness) and finds another person accepts that part of oneself as well as other qualities (both good and bad), that’s when a real friendship is formed.
