I’m a “real life” anti-social person. By this I mean that online, I’m very sociable. I’ll talk to various people for hours on Twitter, Facebook and Skype.
I prefer this method of communication to in person, unless its one on one. I hate group settings, I generally end up on my own, on the outside, and I’m not enough of an extrovert to push myself into the conversation.
I’m not exactly sure why I like online communication better, it’s not because it’s text-based, because I use Skype voice/video as well. It may have something to do with the fact that I get bored very easily, and if its online, I can multi-task (even though I tend to get told off because I’m getting sidetracked if I do this during Skype voice/video calls)
That said, I’m also quite happy to be alone and have no contact with anyone else for long periods of time. I think being an only child helps this, because I had to make my own fun a lot of the time, as I didn’t have siblings to play with.
