From experience, and other people telling me about their experience, I can tell you that for more people than less, it’s easier to talk to people online versus real life. For example, you don’t know how to talk to girls, you choke every time you speak to them at school but, when you get home you log on and you are invincible. There is something about non face to face interaction that makes talking so much easier. Also, it’s easier to share who you are with people online because it’s easier to find people like you. But, for some people, talking in real life is no issue for people, like my group of friends and I.
