The word friendship now has a much broader meaning. No longer are the bonds of friendship li ited to telephone conversations or speaking face to face. In this days very close friendships can be formed without the people ever meeting and by simply typing words on screen and that is a result of internet which had made everything in our lives easier.

It is not easier to form friendships now than one second ago but that was 'before'.

Thus, I have already won this debate.

Aside from that, the theory that because people can make friends on the internet that making friends is now easier is absurd.

The fact that so many people who you could be making friends with, in real life, are too distracted on their iPhone to have the decency to engage in friendly conversation with you already decreases your probability of making friends with them.

They are likely to be distracted playing games, listening to music and watching porn to consider anyone online their actual 'friend' in the first place. It would be a huge leap of faith to state than any 'friend' online is even a true form of friendship in the first place.

Evne fi friendships do form online they are inevitably less likely due to all the distractions in place.

thus, making friends no is irrefutably more difficult than pre-Internet and is, additionally equivalent to one second before this resolution was made.
