Founded on mutual trust and affection, friendship is one of the most precious relationships there is. With friends, we share life experiences, broaden our horizons and build common futures. Yet the nature of friendship is difficult to define. How do we choose our friends? How do society, politics, culture and social networks influence friendships? Friends, as people we trust, can easily hurt us. Do the secrets they share make them enemies?
