A third of British women stay connected with their friends via texting or the Internet, according to a survey.
Conducted by Food firm Skinny Cow, the survey revealed that almost one in five females could remain without seeing their best pals for six months.
The surveyors questioned 2,124 women in the country, and found that one-fifth of them had more than 100 Facebook friends. However, most of the women admitted that their online pals were not their best mates.
Only three per cent of women quizzed for the survey said that men got in the way of friendships. “Technology can be a great thing for friendships — it means we are able to maintain older friendships longer and make new friendships a lot easier,” the Sun quoted the survey as stating.
