Default Sarcasm over the net.

Is it really easy to figure out when someone is being sarcastic over the net? All you're looking at is the words they're typing. It's not like you can hear them or see their facial expression when they're typing.

I find it hard to tell sometimes. When I get an text from one of my friends some times I don't know if they are mad at me or not.

A LOT of mishaps have come from the lack of a sarcasm button for me on the net

It's easy for me after I get to know the person really well especially the way they write for example my friend Zoey she's VERY sarcastic so she's usually like:

Oh, how nice.

That's her response to things that aren't really nice. It's easy to catch the sarcasm with people that you know really well. Sarcasm is easy especially in IMs / PMs.

But what if you do not know this person. You are randomly chatting and say something that you consider sarcastic and it offends them? This has happened so many times to me. It is so sad. I am a very sarcastic person, trust me if I want to be serious and mean I will be and you will know it. But apparently a lot of people don't get it. So really it depends.... I would say no the actual question. Sarcasm unless expressed by someone you know to be, is hard to tell over the net or in texts.

At first, I thought sarcasm on forums are fun and brings spice into any topic. But later on, it becomes too mean-spirited most of the time.

That's why I don't use sarcasm whenever I'm on places like this. I'll either be blunt or just won't say anything.

But if people have a way of saying things to certain topics, you'll easily tell if they are or aren't.

If you know the person then yes you can tell for the most part. If you don't know the person then no you probably can't tell.

Default Re: Sarcasm over the net.

If you're not sure if people will get your sarcasm...

1. Use a smiley that gives the impression you want to give
2. Only use sarcasm to your friends that know you,
prevent looking like a dummy in front of people you've just met.

Some times it super simple, if you know the person. If you don't know them, check out the smiley they are using or emotion con.

I can never tell. And my sarcasm is apparently really hard to detect in real life, so it reaaaally fails over the internet.
