I notice that we should have good and long time relationshio friendship. Either with our schoolmates or office mates. I always try to keep in touch with my good friend through many channels..At least, I must have their contact number or email address.. Lucky now we have social networking channel like facebook or friendster so that we will always keep in touch with them.. I always try to send birthday wish or having time to eat at restaurant with them if I am live in the same city.. How about you? How you keep in touch with your old friends?

I keep in touch with my friends mostly through social networking...Facebook, Twitter, YM, and so on. Nevertheless, I try to have their phone numbers whenever I bumped into them, or sending them messages through the networking site...I think social networking will be the best answer to connect to old friends as we can be updated with their daily life as well as update them with ours...

I really don't. I have talked to some on facebook or messaged them there, but that is about the extent of it. I met some friends from high school for lunch one day. And I went to one of my friends house after she moved away, but that is all. I'm awful about keeping in touch.

to my old friends.. i do not have now opportunity to preserve those friendship that we had before. because they are far now to me. they are living far away in our house. In fact, i do not know how to communicate now to them because of lack of communication. For any reasons, the same happen to those my classmates when i was in elementary even in my high school days. Therefore, i am so sad for this happenings.

Hello there! I keep in touch before with my old friends by writing letters. But now, with the latest technology, we keep in touch by phone, emails or chat sessions. Cheers!

Now I only keep in touch with one old friend from high school. I have his contact and MSN address and whenever I want to go out, I'll call him or he calls me. Recently we just went cycling and planespotting, although he doesn't have the same kind of hobby as me, but we enjoy going out together. It's funny, because of all the friends I have in high school, I'm only closest to him. I feel it's better like that.

I have a few good friends, but I moved away to a different city once I left college. We keep in contact via twitter, there we can all see what each other is doing. If we have something particular to discuss then we will talk via text. If we happen to be online at the same time then we will talk via MSN. And every so often we will visit each other, I will probably be heading up their around Xmas time and the last time we saw each other was probably in June.

I keep in touch with old friends through facebook. Sometimes we meet up and catch up on what's happening with each one's lives. It's good to do that once in a while. It's good to be surprised at what had been happening on their lives.

I have cast my network as widely as I can, to spread out my net to connect with my friends. I have many people who I keep in contact with on Facebook, and many others I meet face to face whenever I can. Some people limit their connections because they think their friends sap their energy, but I believe that if you have good friends, and you area good friend to them, they give you energy every time you connect. Giving credit where credit is due is a wonderful way to help your friends feel affirmed by you. I love it when my friends achieve their goals, because it makes me feel warm inside. I love my friends and I care about them.

facebook and emailing for me is useful,in facebook u can search your long lose friends/classmates etc just type the full name, but you know life is busy when working an email is the best thing to do to contact them.

Hi, I still keep in touch with school mates. We all are married and have their own families but once in a year we all meet at a hotel and we book the hotel banquet hall for next year on the same date before leaving. We all share the expenses and in the mean time we keep in touch with mobile phone and email. Prior to email and mobile we used to keep in touch with each other through letters. It is in maintaining your relation and your concern with friends that is all it matters. Happy friendship, Calpro

I just mostly rely on social networking sites since some of them have changed their phone numbers.

For the most part I keep in touch with my old friends via Facebook. There's one or two friends who don't have a Facebook whom I email instead but for everyone else I just chat with them every once and a while on Facebook.

Mostly through Facebook and Yahoo Messenger. I love facebook because you can easily share photos and videos, chat and send messages. Especially with friends and relatives who are residing in other countries, it makes communication easier and affordable.
