WHAT YOU CAN DO
EXAMINE YOUR USE OF TECHNOLOGY
When technology is your servant rather than your master, it will help you keep in touch with your friends and even draw closer to them.
Note the suggestions you would like to implement, or write down your own ideas.
- Have more in-person conversations (rather than solely relying on texting or email)
- Put away (or silence) the phone when conversing with others
- Cut back on the time spent scrolling through social media
- Become a better listener
- Contact a friend who is going through a hard time
2 thoughts on “How Does Technology Affect Your Friendships?”

A person could start to view his friends as apps that can be used and shut off as needed.
