The consensus is that people who spend a lot of time on the internet or in front of the television, as was more popular before, are more likely to have poor social skills. Online socialization is thought to be more in-depth and as a precursor to a face-to-face encounter, it is a great advantage in facilitating familiarity or reducing awkwardness. Generally, many people believe that character ultimately determines the development of social skills, since the more outgoing person will make more friends in person, than the shy person will. Online, however, this does not have to be the case, since it is less intimidating to chat in the impersonal environment of the internet. This may also cause other problems such as the development of rude or curt behaviour since a person may hide behind a wall of anonymity. For this reason, young people should be taught to socialize with others in person and develop social grace. Kenena
