This is change. When I was working I was meeting so many people. But Now I am in Corona days. So I can not meet people.

Sometimes I meet new people online, especially through Facebook and Instagram. They are people who have some friends in common with me or people that work in the same place as me. It is good to meet new people in order to expand your friend circle and maybe start doing something new or different.

This happens regularly, but now during the corona it is a little bit so hard.

It's difficult for me to answer the similar question accurately. Indeed I can meet many new people over a week, but it can happen that I know nobody during a month.
