Meeting people online has become such a normal occurrence today that it is not surprising when people say they have made friends online. If you do meet someone new online you want to greet them normally. Start with a simple hello and then ask them questions like you would when you meet someone new in public. Do not try to pry too much into their life, since you have just met them. Tone isn’t clear when typing online, so be sure that you are typing words that will most likely not cause offense in order to be able to make a friend.
