|Redefining the word 'Friend' in the Social Media Age|
This article initially was going to explore how the definition of the word "friend" has changed in the social media age. The plan was to start this article with a definition of the word with Dictionary.com being the source. But upon visiting the Dictionary.com site, something caught my attention.
