  • The trouble with social media friendships with people you don't know personally is that it's often hard to convey something without it being taken the wrong way. When engaged in a face-to-face dialogue you can see the other person's face and read the body language pretty well. Online, you can't always say the right thing to everyone - sometimes a shin is going to get kicked. Don't beat yourself up over it - they'll pull through. Just drop the matter and let it float off into the land of the forgotten. You'll be swapping spit again in no time.
