My experience as a writer
I do not consider online communication such as social networking, e-mail, or instant messaging as formal or real writing. It is merely casual conversation converted into easily typed shortcuts and perhaps incorrect but simpler spelling. However, that does not mean that my formal writing is as lax. It is the same as conversation. One converses differently for peers than for critics and teachers, the same goes for writing and written communication. In e-mails to my teachers, I use proper grammer and spelling, but in an e-mail to one of my frends, i wood spel words shortr and easy as I speak more casually with my friends.
