The power of communication is determined not only by who you communicate with and how often, but also by how you distribute time and attention between contacts. One of the most important factors is the constancy of communication, according to a study by Spanish scientists.

Suppose among your friends there is someone with whom a stable two-way communication is established. This friend can live in the same city or for a thousand kilometers, you can walk around the bars every week or just chat in messengers.
Meetings with friends should be cyclical
In any case, it’s important that you have a well-established rhythm of communication. And if the average frequency of communication (no matter once a day, a week or a month) will suddenly be broken more than eight times – the connection is likely to be terminated.
If you are very busy, better respond shortly, but do not leave a person without attention, or reduce the frequency of communication gradually, otherwise you risk losing friends.
