When it comes to making friends, you might think of using your smartphone to send texts, Instagram to make videos, or Snapchat to post funny pictures.
In fact, a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that you can make your friends feel more connected, too.
The study found that the more people used social media, the more likely they were to connect with people from their social circles.
The results also showed that people who use the social network are more likely to be in a “social network of friends.”
It’s a finding that might help you in your work and social life.
“It’s pretty clear that people use social media to find and connect with each other,” said lead author Amy Bosch, a psychology professor at Cornell University.
“The key is to make the social interactions meaningful, and to be aware of what the impact of that connection is.”
For example, the study found a positive correlation between people’s use of Facebook and their social network, but there was no significant relationship between Facebook use and people’s social network use.
But if you want to make friends in a way that you won’t feel awkward about, that’s a good place to start.
The researchers found that people in a group that used Facebook the most often, who also had the highest use of a variety of social media tools, had the most social connections.
The same was true for those in a social network of the least friends.
And when it came to making a social connection, Facebook use was associated with more people meeting other people in person.
The effect of Facebook use is the same whether you’re talking about your Facebook friends or someone else.
So while you might be able to talk to your friend on the phone, the conversations on Facebook may feel more natural, said Bosch.
In addition to this research, Bosch also found that using Facebook was associated not just with a higher level of connection, but with greater levels of social and emotional support.
People who were most engaged in their social networks had higher levels of support for their friends, and for themselves, she said.
It’s important to remember that you don’t have to be a Facebook user to feel connected with others.
You don’t need to be on Facebook, or have a Facebook account, to feel more like you belong.
“This isn’t a matter of social networking being bad or even useless,” Bosch said.
“You just need to make sure that your interactions with other people are meaningful and that your friends are genuine and not just friends for your own benefit.”
The study was conducted online and in real life.
