EXPRESS LOL: A scholarly analysis of Friendship Day

Express LOL | New Delhi | Posted: August 5, 2014 11:39 am

Friends are forever. That’s exactly what the corporate machine tries to make you forget on Friendship Day (or Friendship Week, as it’s now become). They try to make you send greeting cards, wishes and Facebook messages to your ‘friends’. Just think of it – how many of us send Friendship Day wishes to our real friends?

That’s all Friendship Day is, these days – a celebration of cheesy WhatsApp forwards, Facebook wall posts and Twitter DMs. Here is a deep, graphical analysis of the phenomenon:

Friendship-Day-1 Friendship-Day-2 Friendship-Day-3 Friendship-Day-4 Friendship-Day-5 Friendship-Day-6

If you’ve reached till here, we can’t help ourselves any more; we’ve drowned in the cheesiness, too. Happy Friendship Week!
