Is it possible to find empathy through the internet?
For the full effect, empathy is really something you feel best when someone shows their understanding of your emotions, but as all things emotional, it is best shown and perceived when expressed and felt face to face. Now, the internet can provide some tools to get us closer to the real thing, such as video-conferencing, or even voice only can be better than reading and typing to answer. When face to face interactions is not possible, the internet can provide some feeling of empathy, but both sides have to know each other from real physical interactions, or be ready to open-up in a non-threatening environment, whatever that means for each of us.
