Photos + Facebook = Friends

Seriously, this might be one of the biggest, practical lessons I’ve picked up in Korea: taking pictures and posting them on Facebook is one of the best ways to make friends.

This is huge. It’s what separates day to day living and holiday living.

Normal people don’t take pictures all the time and post them on Facebook. That’s only for special events, right?

Well, you can trick your life into thinking you’re living a special event all the time. And here’s the thing: it’s not really a trick. If you’re enjoying it, you’re enjoying it. At that point, it doesn’t matter if it’s a “real” holiday or not.

That’s one benefit.

The other benefit is that it brings people together. Take a picture, tag everyone up, and next thing you know, later that evening when everyone’s at home, you’ll end up chatting with each other again.

Person A: “That was awesome, right?”

Person B: “Yeah.”

Person C: “Yep, yep. We should do that again.”

Person A: “No kidding.”

Person B: “What are guys doing on Wednesday?”

Person D: “I’m free.”

Person B: “Serious? I was kidding, but I’m in if anyone else is.”

Person E: “I’m in.”

Person F: “Me too.”

Person C: “Yep, yep.”

Person A: “Let’s do it.”

I love this stuff. It’s what makes my stay in Korea so amazing.

Thing is, though, you don’t have to move to Korea to do this. Photos are universal. Facebook is universal. Friendships are universal.¬†You can do this anywhere in the universe.

For that matter, I can’t wait to get to heaven: I’m going to take pictures and post them on Facebook.
