    To get on with someone or to get along with someone?

    Hello!

    I don't know the difference between these two idioms: to get along with someone vs to get on with someone.

    In this context: "He is friendly and gets on/along with everyone he meets", what (and why?) would you choose?

    Thank you!

    "Get along" in AmE.
