William Deresiewicz blames Social Media for the lack of genuine friendships these days.In the text he states ““… has destroyed its own nature and that of individual friendship itself.” Social media is isolating us, but also tricks us in to thinking we’re connected. Seeing them all together in one place makes us feel closer to them, but we are not actually closer. “There they are, my friends, all in the same place. Except, of course, they're not in the same place or rather they're not my friends”. Deresiewicz blames social media sites like Facebook, Myspace and Twitter for the altering of friendships. When we use to take pride in a small group of friends we now have hundreds online. "...Once we decided to become friends with everyone, we would

Today 's younger generations are obsessed with technology and the sense of connection it brings them. As Gladwell brought to light in his "Small Change" essay, the current belief that social media brings a superior connection between people throughout the world is falsely based on the misunderstanding of strong-tie and weak-tie relationships.The idea that you can connect with x number of "friends" at anytime through the use of social media has caused a disconnect between people and those around them. For instance, the cartoon shows a young boy tapping away

Friendship, a word used often nowadays, loosely as a description for people that you might be in contact with throughout your day to day life. Through the development of technology and mainstream media have we changed the way we interact and the definition we use to describe friends?

For William Deresiewicz in the writing “Faux Friendship” he claims that the strong forever lasting bonds of a classical relationship do not exist anymore as we have labeled everyone as friends and the introduction of social media has diluted the meaning of friendships. I do agree with him that technology has changed the way we interact and how we view each other, on the other hand though
“The science of today is the technology of tomorrow” (Teller, 2003). Nowadays, the number of using technology has increased. For example, an American study shows that there are above 4 billion smart phones are used and around 3 million devices are sold daily. (2010, July 2nd). Some studies have found that even with being more active on social media there are people feel more alone than ever. Shockingly, the studies showed that most people who are active on social media they are under the age of 35 and they are who feel lonely. (Warrell, 2012). So, spending a lot of time using smart devices keeps the users away from the real world and puts them on a fake world. Also, those people they might lose some friends for the reason that they do not care about them or giving them some of their time. The weakness of people relations between each other, lack of conversations and internet addiction are the main reasons that let the technology make us alone.
