Approximately 5 to 6 hours. I read articles, news, solve crossword puzzles, download movies and songs, watch videos, send e-mails and write in my blog.
I use my real name to avoid identity confusions.
Yes I have with many people. I made friends from Friendster, Tagged, Facebook and readers of my blog. I'm still in touch with these people. Trust comes with time. As more conversations took place, we got to know each other better. And if I notice anything suspicious about a particular person, I delete all connections.
My parents do not monitor what I access online. Because I have my own laptop, controlling becomes a little difficult for them. So I basically have access to anything. I have been using the internet since I was eight. So they're pretty much used to my going online. They're just not very happy that I spend more time on my PC than with my books. I think that happens almost everywhere right.. ;)
No, the online world hasn't deleted connections with my friends. It's just given me an opportunity to meet more people, people outside my horizon, who are really good friends of mine now. :)
