I have a friend named Sue. Actually, “Sue” isn’t her real name, and she isn’t really a friend: she’s something akin to a lost sorority sister—we went to the same college, participated in the same activities and had a lot of mutual respect and admiration for one another.

I thought this was going to be about the friends with benefits I have, not some article about Facebook people telling stuff to others...

Nope, for most anyone, internet-only friends are shallow relationships compared to those you know in RL (real life). There might be some odd exceptions with a few people out there who cannot get out of their home to socialize, but not for me.

All my friends are on city-data forum. Seriously, I have more interaction with personalities (agreeing, disagreeing) on different forums than I do in real life. Real life is basically small talk, benign, low risk topics, weather kids, neighborhood. Never about religion, personal relationships, sex, history, demographics, anthropology, or personal finance <- it's hard to talk about these things with anyone except your spouse and city data forum.
