Apparently, Brits prefer socializing more in the virtual world than actually spending time with friends in real life.
A recent survey has proved that social networking sites are the new hangout spots for catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
According to the research, an average person visits networks such as Facebook and MySpace for 11 hours a week - but devotes just ten to actually linking up.
A quarter of women feared whatever they planned would not keep all their friends happy, while the same proportion of men admitted they were just too lazy.
The poll was by event organizing website wigadoo.com.
"Lifestyles mean organizing gatherings and finding a suitable time can be complicated," The Sun quoted the website's rep, as saying.
