I wonder if anyone has had success with mitigating their isolation through social media. Yesterday, I felt really isolated, until I received a postive response from one of the members. Then I received an email from a friend travelling, who's never had time for friendship.
I suppose that nurturing one another is important in sustaining any friendship, so in the second case, I'm not to blame since I've tried. With this website, there are other limitations such as anonymity which limit the growth of the relationship.
Social media websites were suggested to me many years ago, and I didn't venture into any "chat" room to this day. However, I see the advantages with portability, etc.
It was just suggested that I replace my basic cellphone with a smartphone, perhaps because of the advantages of social media.
Any experiences from members with social media success stories are welcome.
