I personally consider them friends. I've actually talked with some of my CR friends on Skype. The ones I've met(through Skype and CR, not in IRL) seem like very nice people and I think if I knew them IRL we would be great friends.

They are for me, I met them online and hang out with them in real life.

Online friends?
I'm closer to my online friends then to my IRL friends at the current moment. Not to sound cliche or whatever but, my online friends were there when my IRL friends weren't. I am, though, doing a good balance of the two now.

Yes online friends are real friends. Otherwise I would have no friends. But, I usually get along better with online people than, real life people.
Although if I had met my online friends in real life(before becoming friends) the friendship probably would never would have started in the first place.

Friends are friends online or not. You could say thought that friends you know IRL mean more since online it's just 2 computers communicating no matter how much you try to make it something different. You can never truly know them without meeting first. That's how people get tricked after all.

I think online friends can be real friends. I mean, I talk to lots of people in real life, but I don't count all of them as my friends, just like I don't count all the people I talk to online as my friends.

But every so often, you find someone, either online or in real life, who just makes you so happy every time you talk to them, and something just clicks, and you just feel like "I want to build a pillow fort with this person, and stay up until 3am just talking and eating cake", and that's when I would feel like I was friends with someone.

At times like this, only Tumblr can explain what I mean: http://jamietheignorantamerican.tumblr.com/post/39671216594/ill-always-be-there-for-you-because-thats-what

I guess so, I'm just not so close with them compared to my real life friends.

Real friends are the people who have your back. I don't think you can say that "online" friends do not have the capacity to be "real" friends. Just as people you are physically close to can be fair weather friends, or acquaintances, so to can the hordes that fill a "friend list".

Yes. I'm still in contact with a girl I met online when we were 14. We've become penpals of sorts.

I'm closer to some of my online friends than some of my offline friends, and I say they are real friends.

Different between irl friends and online friends, though you tend to talk to online ones more. I'd be more inclined towards no though.
