    If your friends are local maybe. You can always meet up and catch up. But when all your friends and lovers are in the cyber world and in distant places it usually means you have no social life and need to turn the dang computer off and meet some real life people locally.

    In a way no and in many ways yes.
    Why I say yes is that, internet is the cheapest way to get to know new people even at the rate of any per minute using social networking sites.

    No matter whether you can walk or talk, you can million friends of your interest and needs online.

    I would say that type chatting could be the best initial step to get to know a stranger fully before letting him into your personal territory.

    But through all this, we tend to develop an addiction or I will call it a laziness towards talking to a person in the very next room of yours. You don't even need to laugh or cry as there are smileys to do that job for you. At the end of it, all the other utilities of your body become dormant with all the strain falling on your ten fingers to express all that your mind is thinking.

    Above all this, you lose the inexplicable feeling of enjoying the nature while having a cup of coffee with a like-minded friend of yours.

    I definitely believe that interacting with people online classified as being social because you are being in contact with other people. When your in contact with other people via email, voip, web conference, chatting and social networking its as slow to being social with someone that you know.
