Why do we indecently share our thoughts on web site?

I'm trying to figure out where's the "need" from writing our thoughts on a web site. VERY open to discussion. Also open to discussion about why is it so hard to be true and honest with ourselves. Why can't we always be transparent with others? Wondering... about a lot of things... Would appreciate answers and other wonder!!!

Thank!

yes but its very easy to open up to people when u dont know them or see their face.being able to talk openly and freely on the net can be very libertaing and its also easy to find people to talk to about the things you like.
its not that easy to talk to your friends about stuff like U2 when they arent fans.

i think we can be just as open in the flesh but with such a big audience, its easier to find answers you are looking for with many different opinions on whatever it is you're talking about.

Because for the most part, people don't really want you to share too much, to get too serious, or too personal. People naturally want to hear that things are good and it often catches them off guard if you share what you're really thinking; it makes them uncomfortable and they don't know how to respond.

Pleasantville.

I'm actually sympathetic to those who only want to hear the positive, although I myself am pretty good at listening to and not recoiling from those who share their true feelings, even when those feelings are not so wonderful. When someone is talking to me, more often than not I find what they're saying to be interesting. But it might not be the content of their monologue that grabs me. It might be the tone of voice they use, or perhaps they have an interesting accent, or maybe they're just very expressive with their facial expressions.

People are fascinating. Some are just plain hot. (Where did that come from?)

maybe out of a desire to express to a larger audience (without fear) and because it's the only place in the world where you can instantly + publicly make a statement and be guaranteed feedback of some kind (most of the time). and then once that happens you instantly become part of some new, strange community. much like here!

welcome.

Well, I just got back from my road trip back to my hometown, and now I am very lonely again, as all of my friends live around that area. When I come back to my current home, Interferencers are the closest friends I've got around here.

I find it alot easier to share thoughts or views on the net sometimes more than real life. Writing down things to me have a lot more importance than speaking words.

Plus then I wouldnt have met so many wonderful U2 fans. Since none of my real life friends really care for them.
