Relationships and Companionships

The first thing that comes to mind when  one thinks of a relationship is that it has to be personal. There must be some kind of constant physical interaction between two parties that consist of a relationship. A great deal of success depends upon the amount of quality time that the two sides of an intimate relationship would spend with each other. During this quality time, people would know a person on a much deeper level and determine their compatibility. However, quality time and establishing an acquaintance has been abruptly changed by social media.

Photos are constantly posted on social networking profiles which become substitutes for seeing each other eye to eye. Furthermore, getting to know a person is fairly convenient because of the different features in social media that enables a person to post their thoughts into short statuses or tweets. Other than that, one gets constantly updated about heir partners. Thus, it becomes very easy to avoid missing any important events or big changes.
