Internet Chatrooms Help Those in Distress

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24726520 reported an Oxford study that chatrooms help socially isolated people reach out.  While relying solely on chatrooms for social interaction may be bad, it is better than not interacting at all. Some people have difficulty interacting with people in public so chatrooms can help them learn social skills. They might become dependent on the chatrooms and never branch out to  face to face social interaction.
