London, June 24 : It seems that Britons like living more in the virtual world than in the real one, for according to a new survey, they spend more time socializing on the internet than with pals in real life.
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.
