Spectrum of Online Friendships

I find this a fascinating continuum, it is something I have never tried to map but have been interested in over the years since the internet started and I had access to “friends” way beyond my own normal circle of acquaintances. I can instantly see how far many online friendships have progressed and see where they may be heading. Thinking about many on-line friends, how many will get to the end of the row, how many will reach a halfway point and stick and why? I guess because a lot like off line friends, some will be casual friends with whom you will spend a little time, from time to time, others will become much closer, sharing similar ideas or passions about certain things and you will actively seek them out.
