4. Excellent post.
It's such an interesting medium because you see one side of a person- not necessarily out of any malevolence, but just circumstance. There are people here with whom I find their online personalities irritating, but I like them in real life as people (or may if I had the opportunity). There's people with whom I've connected well with online only to find it doesn't translate well in person. There's plenty of people I'm quite content to have a very minimal, surface online relationship with.

It's a tool. A means. It's interesting to see as the mom of a young woman how it has shaped her and her friends. In terms of the whole MySpace thing, she tends to network there with real life friends, but not so much anyone she doesn't know. It's a whole other avenue in the social arena we didn't have.
