No, life is not more exciting online. Live is exciting when you live each moment in touch with your friends or relationships, and share things together (fun, sad, etc.). Then you have a lot the anecdotes to remember. Life online is superficial, you really don't know the people who is talking to you.

If anyone answers yes to this they can't have done too much offline.

Life is more Exciting online for me because I love going on fan sites and having fun and talk to my friends on Msn Messenger. I couldn't live without the internet.

No, life is much less exciting online. But some of the harms of modern life are less apparent -- we're more removed from them. The degradation of our neighborhoods and of the natural world, the loss of civility in our communities, the loss of our communities, the loss of choice and of our democracy -- all this seems more manageable and less tragic. No. Life is not more exciting online. It just seems less sad.
