People don’t just date online. Making FRIENDS online is more common now like, real friends you might eventually meet up with in person.
And a recent study figured out a simple trick for making more of them. You just have to do one thing: Join as many groups as possible.
Computer scientists at Rice University went through a bunch of data from sites like Facebook and Instagram. And after all their number crunching, the answer was just that simple.
The more “groups” within a social media platform you join, the more friends you’ll make. And if the groups are about things you’re interested in, you’ll make even stronger connections.
If you’re just going for pure volume, the type of group you join doesn’t really matter.
This is also good advice if you want to make more friends OFFLINE. Because when you get involved with something you’re interested in, you tend to meet people with similar interests. So it works in the real world too.
I personally like to go on the Facebook Group San Jose History. Check it out!
