Has on-line chat replaced the phone as annoying teenage communications method? Before, all you could do was twirl the phone cord around your finger while you roll around on your bed and talk with Janet. Now you can have multiple windows open and exchange IM's (Instant Messages) with Louis, Tammy, That cute guy who e-mailed a photo of him and his dog, and Janet.

The scary thing is: You may never meet Louis, Tammy, the dog guy, or Brittany face to face. Its a weird environment to develop one's social skills.
