I never got that and just stated what I prefer between FB and IF. I need to read carefully. This is more about why people hide theselves. anyway.
Edit: I think virtual world appeals to people who are not social in real life. The time spent here is directly propotional to spare social time you have. Those who have many real life friends will be less active here. Then there will be those who have a social life and then they make time for debates, programs, shows. Finally people who have not much to do and therefore get addicted to chatting and interacting.
that was answer to topic makers second point. now that i have read full post. lol
ummm.. mildly disagree, though i like most points as usual
and thanks for re-reading
2,3 years ago i'd come to IF looking for written updates and videos of missed episodes of silly hindi soaps i was addicted to, cos my mum used to watch em back home ... last year when i lost her..apparently i stopped watching tv altogether except bigg boss(find it a total time waste tbh
and since i dont get to write much(and talk, eat and even pee sometimes) cos of strange kind of profession im in... IF for me is a fix for all of that...may be im in wrong profession but thats the only thing i know..
i wont call myself nt social.. it depends if people around me have anything in common or not..if i have bunch of school kids around me i'd rather turn into recluse
but may be all of you here are school kids and im fine with everyone(probably we are too judgemental in real life so another +1 to IF
please note that i did not mean to say you were in high interest group i.e. not social and therefore active. lol. i dont know how active you are.
that was my general assessment that if someone is not much social then they are more likely to spend time in virtual world compared to those who have real world friends and are social there. i didnt mean to suggest this for you. i am sorry if that impression came out from my post. now that you have described your situation i think you will be in loe/moderate group depending upon your activity.
i am sorry to hear about your mother. may she rest in peace.
no i am not a kid either. lol. you dont get the status of a King when you are kid. anyway hope all clear.
