I've read an article which says " Communicating online is more conducive to openness than a face to face rendevouz." Accordingly, we tend to interact differently online.. Do you agree with this statement?

I agree with this assertion. I'm more open to speak out my mind in my online world than my real life friends. Though I like face-to-face talk yet for some reason I just can't share everything. But online world is different.

First, welcome to myLot! It's a great site. I agree with this. I hate to talk on the phone, and I'm terrible about keeping in touch with people. Sometimes they think I'm aloof, but I'm just really shy. Unless I haave something sort of earthshaking to discuss, I feel like I'm intruding upon their time. Online, you can pick up or ignore messages, so there's no problem with interrupting anything. I don't know if anybody else is at their best well past midnight, but I am if I'm not working the next day. On workdays I go to bed very early, because I have to get up for work at 3:30 am. =(. If I'm not working, though, that's about the time I go to bed. I used to read, but I'm becoming somewhat hooked on myLot. I think I might finally be learning to socialize to some extent. Considering I'm older than dirt, it's about time! I just find typing more comfortable than talking.
