In the 21st century communication is no longer a barrier. Gone are the days when people used to wait for letters to arrive. When a person would write and the other would wait to receive it. Now it is just a click away from saying hi to your old buddies no matter how far they are from you.

And with the introduction of so many social networking websites, there is no way one can stay away from friends and loved ones. There are gadgets in the market that will bring all your friends at your fingertips without a hassle. Nowadays people are very busy interacting each other on social media. Nobody is above it. Many have found their old school, and college mates.

Some lost friends who were not in touch for many years because they moved to a different country can also be reached through these sites. It is very convenient and helpful. Recently, a couple of my friends who are into one of these popular social networking sites in my city have decided to meet once in three or four months. The idea is to get to know each other.

This may help people who want to meet new people develop like-minded friends. It also helps activity among some lazy people.

Building friendship without boundaries is always good. You get to know different cultures and traditions.

A friend jokingly told me, “Ultimately after retirement one should be more and more active on these sites.”

I fully support his opinion.
