Speak to the person at the other end of the line — not to the telephone — then you’re more apt to be pleasant and understanding.
As technology and the services we use are getting ever more advanced, it could, for some people, become harder to make real friends. The social networking hubs that have become the backbone of business are also becoming the new avenue for making friends.
In the 1940s, when the phone first became a household item, people started to question if we would even need to get out of the house anymore (just like we did when the television and the Internet became household names). However, history has shown us that we still need that physical interaction. We want to keep all our friends and still go out for a coffee or a movie every once in a while.
If you still don’t find a way to make friends in today’s jungle of technology services then why not have a look at this insanely geeky and retro guide brought to our attention by Contact Sheet? It’s called How To Make Friends By Telephone and is a guide meant to show people how to go about making real friends even though you’re in different locations by just using technology to interact back in the 1940s.
