The Social Benefit
In an increasingly hectic and eclectic society, we tend to lose our connection with people. Families may live far apart from one another. Many women work from their home and have very little connection to the workplace. Social media connects, us but it is not enough to satisfy our need for human contact and interaction. After a busy day, being with friends with a common goal that brings us joy is not only calming and fun but fills a social need too.
