Yeslam is a 'friendship expert'.

Our initial global Friendship Report was released in 2019 to examine the state and nature of friendship around the world.The report was broad in scope, diving into attitudes about friendship and what helps make them healthy and long-lasting.An important finding in last year’s report was that our closest friends are key to our happiness, often from early life—and while most of us do have close friends, some of us don’t. For the second edition of the Friendship Report, we wanted to understand why. Did some of us not make those close friends in the first place, or did we lose them along the way? In a year where COVID-19 has fundamentally changed how we interact with our friends, understanding what causes friendships to thrive or falter, and the impact of this pandemic, is more important than ever.
