Celebrate Friendship Day In Cyber Space

Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year. In 2013, the 4th of August is the day appointed for celebrating Friendship Day. This special day for friends is usually celebrated in a big way when we are in school or in college. But as we grow older, the charm of tying Friendship bands and giving greeting cards is somehow lost.

Most of us think that celebrating Friendship Day has become a bit juvenile. And why does one have to have a special day for friends? But the truth is, we slowly start falling out of touch with our friends during the the adult phase of our life.

But guess what; you can celebrate Friendship's Day without being juvenile too. The cyber space gives you that option. Celebrating Friendship's Day on cyber space is one of the most convenient things about modern technology.

Here are some ideas for you to celebrate Friendship Day in cyber space.

Find Old Friends

Facebook is one of the best mediums on this planet to find lost friends. If there are some friends who have fallen off the circuit, then look hard, they might still be on some other friend's list of Facebook friends. Find those special friends who meant a lot to you at one point of time in your life.

Make Friend Groups

We are all lazy by nature. We suffer from sheer inertia when it comes to picking up the phone and making a call or sending a text message. So make group chats on mobile applications like 'Whats App'. It helps you stay in touch with your friends 24x7. That should be your Friendship Day task for the year

Send Online Greetings

Online greeting cards are not silly. They are actually convenient and most often free. So no matter how childish it sounds, you can still send Friendship Day greetings and virtual friendship bands to your friends. They may laugh but they will be touched by your gesture.

Write That Long Due Email

Sometimes we communicate with out friends in snatches and half sentences. We run out of time to write a long and interesting email. Well, Friendship Day is a perfect excuse to sit down with a mug of hot coffee and share all the updates of your life with your friends.

The best gift that you can give yourself and your friends on Friendship Day is to be in touch. So use the privileges of the cyber space to be in touch with your dear friends.
