Where and how to find new friends online
To find friends online who are more like you, the first step is to find the right network for you. By choosing a network with like-minded people, you will find more people who interest you, and others will also be more interested in you.
- Smaller communities are almost always better than larger ones
In a small community, each member is important to keep the community alive and people will want to include you as much as possible. In a large community, you blend in with the crowd and people might not even recognize you unless you’re a long-time member.
- Are you interested in gaming with other people online?
Gaming with others online is one of the easiest ways to make friends online. You always have something to talk about – the game you both like. And you can even play it together if it’s an online game.
- Niche interest groups on social media
Join a few local groups about interesting subjects on Facebook. And you will find many friends through these groups. After some time, maybe a few days or weeks, you start getting to know each other by asking questions and liking each other’s pictures.
- Mobile apps or websites to find friends online
If you like online dating, this can be a great alternative. It’s fast and easy, but the downside is that it’s also “fast and easy” to just stop responding.
