I don't understand why the person asking the question has to give an answer for opinion questions. Now I need a bunch of filler words so I can submit my answer even though, I shouldn't have to submit no answer at all. A be..A be .. A be.. That's all folks!
Many people have issues or social insecurities. Speaking over the internet is much easier than speaking in person for some people. There's a lot of pressure that comes with maintaining eye contact or thinking quick enough to hold a proper conversation, So it's understandable that someone would like to speak online, Since you can take time to think and don't have to worry about appearance or anything of the sort.

That experience allows for there to be less pressure in any given moment. I don't think one is better than the other, I think they both have value.
