I'd say during the day a good fifty % is real. at night that number can drop to 10-20%. once the kids get out of school the site goes immature and stupid for a few hours.
I'm just so sick of the internet tough guy routine they pull.
It really depends on the user.
It depends on the time of day. lol
Different times when traffic is slow,there are more computer generated answers. :)
5.4% exactly lol
There's a fair bit of both but you have to use your best judgement.
There are definitely a lot of false accounts but are they entirely phony or are they secondary to another account? Is it another side to the same person who has the primary, all sweetness and light account? I think that people come here to play out fantasies, look for support, cause a nuisance (trolls) and there are other motivations too. There are more people here using it for dating purposes, as it's free and convenient; they are sometimes trying to hide that for obvious reasons. It's just evolving into a multi-faceted site.
I can only say that, as far as I know, the people in my circle are "real". But I've only ever met one person who has now sadly left so without actually knowing a person in the real world, it's impossible to answer this question. It's a horrible waste of someone's time if they're not real though..............don't you think?
Hard to measure, but I'm guessing a very small percentage of Q&A is real. People don't create on-line alter-egos to be the same old-same old they've always been. I'm thinking the stories are a much more likely place to find sincerity. People are more likely to tell it like it is there... or at least like they THINK it is. Q&A is largely about validation, while the stories aren't as much.
I don't take Q/A seriously any more. Some of the other sections can sometimes be more genuine.
Like life I would say it all depends on your perspective. Technically everything is sincere. Even if it is phony/fantasy. It is a reality someone has created and that makes it valid to that person.
Friends are better left for the real life. This is a wonderful place to come and vent, yes, escape reality and release your inhibitions. I didn't understand that you were referring to friendships in your question.
All is a fantasy, all is real, at some point or another we are but to wake up and see things for what they are
Well that's because it's so easy here. Easy to just don't care, easy to fool people, but even if it is "phony" if it helps another person then some good have comed of it.
But at least here people can't see other people who don't even care, they can live in the illusion of perfect bliss if they choose to, a place to escape to from the hard and cold place we call reality, at least this way people can believe that it might be true, that the world is a better place then it really is
Me too, but some people need a safe-haven and this might be it for them, but what do I know :) at least I hope that I answered your question :)
You're welcome miss :)
I don't care either way... I have the few I talk to the handfull that me me laugh and it's what it is
I care but only about the few I'm invested in
