sometimes,I don't think it's ok to make friends online because you don't know the exanctly information of your online friend if you want to meet him or her ,it's too dangerous. but sometimes ,I also think it's ok .because you can say what you want to say with the people online and you don't need to worry about your parents or your friends know what you were said about them. but now questiong is appear ,you don't know the exactly information of the people who are talking with you,can you make sure the people who are talking with you are not your parents or your friends. so ,how do you think about these

i think there is nothing wrong in making friends in online. but i didn;t make it upto now as i feel incomfortable with new people. but there will be no dangerous things , if both are true and good friends. so we have to search for good friend in online. one of my friend made online friend with one guy and after too much of their friendship ,they knowed each other and afterwards they decided to get marraige and their parents also encouraged because they both are same country people.

I've met some chat friends in real life and they have become real close friends of mine . Also my husband and I first got to know each other from chatting online . I don't see how its really any more dangerous then meeting people or dating for the firt time face to face . I mean whenever you meet someone new you are taking a chance . The person you meet at the coffee shop , or the library could be a liar, or alot worse. I think if you go slow and don't give out your phone numbers or addresss or anything until you have talked for a long time and really feel safe with the other person , it's a good way to get to know people .

For me, it's ok to make friends online. You chat online because you're too shy to approach someone to talk to in real life. You get to expose other personalities you have to other people that you don't really know. I think it's one way of showing what you can't show in real life. You don't have to actually meet your online friends. Giving out personal information can be regulated by the person himself. Sometimes, instincts work. People online can be whatever they want to be. So just be cautious and enjoy what it has to offer you. ^_^

I don't actually believe in online chatting i just chat with them, i also realize that in chatting we should be cautious with our words because giving information makes them treat you like i mean they want you to make fall for them and when they meet you expect the unexpected.

I think if you have defined someone as your friend,just trust him/her!Of cause,before the defination you should understand the person as much as possible.

yeap..i think it is ok to have friends over the net..it depends upon on you if you give all infos you have..if you tell your whole stories and secret to them..but sometimes it is better to trust and ask advise to strangers than your own friends and family....about the question "can you make sure the people who are talking wit you are not your parents or your friends?"...simple..you must be sure of where did they get you add..where room you've met them...

i think there is nothing wrong with that as long as there is respect towards each other. the essence of having friends regardless if it is online or physical friendship. you can probably checked that out once your talking to your online friend. you can see him/her on web cam maybe so that you will be fully aware of how the person will look like.
