How many friends do you have (not counting the 1000 or so “Facebook” friends)?
The Daily Mail‘s study says the average adult has 64 friends…mostly from work!
Here’s the break down: 17 from work, 14 from school or college, 14 from social activities or clubs, 13 from social media and 6 from other connections, like meeting through mutual friends.
Your closest friend is probably someone you met at school even though you actually have more in common with your work friends than you do with them.
At some point we’ll probably meet more of them through social media…but how many of us have a good friend we’ve ONLY met online?
Almost all of us, actually!
PR Newswire says 76% of people DO have a good friend they met on the Internet who they’ve never met in person.
Women are more likely to have one (83%) though a surprising 73% of men have, too!
Guess the definition of “friendship” is changing in the Internet age.
When do we have the MOST friends?
New York Magazine says it’s at age 29…when we’re still in touch with school friends while making new ones in the real world.
