Abstract
The fact that Facebook has now become a ubiquitous medium of communication for the initiation, maintenance and renewal of friendship is now a “fait accompli”. As online friendships underscore offline friendships, Facebook remains a preferred social media tool amongst college students. A vital element in the friendship development is a persons’ perception of self-image or 'self-concept'. A low self- concept is antithetical to the initiation of a friendship and even if one develops, it will lack the impetus to be sustained. This paper examines friendships in virtual spaces. It aims to observe whether online friendships can enhance and promote the development of a positive self-image amongst University undergraduate students.
