The move allowed advertisers to better engage their target markets and build stronger relationships with them."Our successful working relationship with Patheos has proved that together, we could achieve even more," said , CEO of BN Media.For this reason, and the six others listed below, I propose we focus not on how to get out of the friend zone, but on why we should stop using the term altogether, effectively banishing the Friend Zone to, well, the Friend Zone.
