HOW TO: 10 Tips to Save Your Relationships Online

Nothing is pure evil, and I am a firm believer of this.

Although social media can definitely cause you to lose your job, become a victim of revenge and can even be the reason why you lose friends, I see that in return, social media can gear you up to help in a cause or even save a relationship!

So, allow me to share with you the top 10 tips I could think of in which social media use can help you save your relationship, regardless of its nature and its duration.

1. A whole new world

Social media has the power to open you up to a world full of possibilities and adventures! If routine is suffocating your relationship and you need to spice it up, you can always find cheaper and more convenient places to go and things to see, just a few clicks away with social media!

However, in reality, all this is true people: almost 6 out of 10 pedestrians has a cup of Starbucks beverage with them at any time of any given day! Just try walking into one of the many branches spread all over the place, chances are you will have to wait in line to get your coffee, muffin or even your small bottle of water!

Still, Starbucks excels in social media!

What’s Next For Social Media? — Future of the Web
