It was Arylynn Presser's New Year's resolution - to meet all her 325 Facebook friends in person!
She even posted a video on her own Facebook page declaring her decision and was determined to fulfill it!
Among the 325 people she decided to meet, a few were old friends from high school and college. A few, for some reason, weren't too keen on meeting... they even went to the extent of "Unfriending" or blocking her. As many as 18 others ignored repeated requests to meet, while five people had passed away and two were actually profiles of pets.
Nevertheless that still left nearly 300 people to visit!
The journey wasn't easy. Presser, you see, also suffered from agoraphobia (a form of anxiety disorder characterised by repeated attacks of intense fear), from which she had suffered from over 30 years.
Braving all obstacles, she travelled to over 13 countries, uniting (or re-uniting) with 292 friends.
During her remarkable trip, she encountered different people with contrasting natures and stories.
She trained as a bodyguard... took Zumba lessons... climbed a mountain in California... learnt to sing opera... rode in a motorcycle sidecar... and learnt how to open a champagne bottle with a sabre (a kind of sword), among an absolutely fantastic collection of experiences.
Her inspirational journey even inspired a documentary - "Face to Facebook".
"I think Facebook is a wonderful gift, a wonderful tool for maintaining friendships. I think it's important for people to get out, log off, and see their friends as well. But it's a very exciting time in the world for Facebook!" she said, in an exclusive few minutes with IBTimes.
