Is the continuous use of the internet as a substitute for face to face social interaction a good or a bad thing for the person using the internet on the long run?

Well that really depends on the person, doesn't it? An overly introverted person would find the internet to be a haven, where an extroverted person would go insane after a while.

Well, I don't think interaction on the internet could act as a substitute for face to face interaction, but it's better than nothing, right?

You could do face to face interaction ON the internet if you really wanted to

awkward as fuck face to face interaction is still face to face interaction, yes.

Maybe if you're ugly and deformed (gross!), but us handsome people have no problem with it.

Voice chatting online I find can be awkward, I don't think I've video chatted at all though. I wouldn't do that. Doesn't matter what you look like, I'd be too nervous to do that, and would be afraid of the other person taking screenshots or something like that. I also don't really see the point of doing video chat over plain voice just to see someones face. why? unless they're showing you some object on camera, maybe then.

I think it's a good thing, if it wasn't for the internet I wouldn't be interacting with people at all.

after 6 years of hikki and I started my job, I had trouble processing what people were saying, and even formulating sentences, I am not sure if others noticed a slight delay response, but I did. So if you aren't using part of your brain for something you used to, it will atrophy, or be reused for something else.

So there is a potential down side.

It is a bad thing imo.
Online interactions are good enough to make most people forget about socializing,but never enough to satisfy their need to socialize. Also sooner or later,you,i and every body else will need to socialize(irl). i am not talking about 1-2 months or 3-5 years, i am talking about 15-20 years.

I don't like going outside so it helps me keep in my little bubble....how meaningful something is depends on the person's interpretation anyway, just as sex can be meaningless to some people and meaningful to others so can on-line interaction.

Over the years I feel like I have substituted having 'real life' friends with 'online friends' and that it's had a huge negative impact on me. I no longer feel the need to make any kind of friendship with people that I've met when starting at school or a new job because I have the safety net of having a lot of people online already.

The internet saved me from loneliness back in the day. I didn't have internet until I was 16, but suddenly once I did, I wasn't (as) lonely. I found friends on the internet, friends that I was never able to make in real life. So, for me, it was absolutely a good thing.
