Many times, we are told that social media is not good for us. We hear that spending too much time on Facebook or Skype is bad for our eyes and makes us reclusive. Sometimes, we even meet the wrong kind of people online. However, social media can aid us in some moments. It can help us make friends we never would have otherwise and get us close to relatives from abroad. In some cases, it can even help us find relatives we did not know we had. Youtube and Facebook helped twin sisters Anais Bordier and Samantha Futerman find each other after 25 years.
The identical sisters were separeted at birth and grew up on different continents, unaware of the existence of the other one. However, by fluke, they stumbled across each other on the internet. Anais was raised as an only child in Paris. Samantha grew up in New Jersey. While she was studying fashion in London, Anais saw the video of an American actress who looked and sounded like her. She later found her on Facebook and sent Samantha a message. She found out the American girl had been born on the same day and in the same town, the South Korean port city called Busan.
Despite being on separate continents, after talking on Skype for a while, the two girls decided to take a DNA test. The results let them know for sure they were indeed twin sisters. Afterward, the two wrote a book together about their experiences, declaring how it had been to find a carbon copy of yourself across the ocean. Despite having grown up in separate places, the twin sisters had the same haircuts in childhood, loved the same nail polish and hated boiled carrot.
Though both girls reached out to their birth mother, she did not want to contact them. What do you think of this Hollywood-like story about the twin sisters who found each other on Facebook?
