January 5 – tie

January 5, 2019 =========

☆  tie 絆


This week’s useful phrase, “It is possible to build close ties with people online.” What do you think about this? I tend to agree – so long as you are sure that the person you are communicating with is really who they say they are, then you can definitely build close ties.

I have one friend, who I see once or twice a year at running events, however, we communicate often via Messenger, and we have built a very strong tie. I also have friends that live in other countries, and social media and the internet has allowed me to continue to strengthen those ties even though we don’t see each other in person.

What about you? Have you built ties with people online?
