what is the difference between cyber friends and friends in real life

What makes a true friendship anymore? Is it whether or not the person knows your birthday, or how many hours you spend talking on the phone or hanging out in person? With all the ways we can communicate now — Skype, ICQ, AIM, Gchat, Facebook Messenger, Grindr, etc. — and with all the people on our buddy lists, who are we really friends with? Is it possible to have friends who are purely for the Internet and others you interact with in real life? What’s the difference?

Of course it is dear. I have a friend from Argentina that i met online 2 years ago in a game, he has helped me for many stuff online.. We are chatting every day and stuff. But the difference is, real life friends have seen you, you are hanging out with them, know many secrets.. I'm sure your internet friend can become a good friend but if you meet in real life and stuff, otherwise only communicating online..
Actually, the online friends are very close to you in all ways. They respond to your problem as urgent as possible. When one travel, you leave your physical friends and family having in mind to make other new ones. But your online friends are always there whether you travel or not, they are there always! So I would say that genuine online friends are friends indeed.
