Context
Help

Facebook allowed me to keep up a connection or link between my best friend and myself when he moved away to California. We both really wanted to keep our connection or bond to each other strong even though we were so far away, so Facebook was a great way to do that. Even though it is now many years later, our connection or tie of friendship has stayed very strong, and we even see each other every summer. It is much easier these days to keep connections with other people who live far away, since the Internet can more easily bring us all together.
