Nowadays, a good many people, especially young people, prefer to make friends online. An online friendship tends to develop at an increasing pace. But some people doubt whether it is wise to make friends online. In their opinion, the Internet is unreal and deceptive.
Everyone needs friends. No one can sail the ocean of life alone. I am in favor of people making friends online. For one thing, it’s very convenient for you to make friends online without worrying about your appearance and conditions of life. For another, online friends can broaden your knowledge about various cultures that you may not find in books. But try not to get too attached to online friends too quickly, and keep online safety rules in mind.
