How Does Technology Help Your Social Anxiety?

Technology gets a bad reputation for disconnecting us from each other and making human interaction less personal. Those complaints are reasonable in some ways, as you gain a certain amount of anonymity online even if you're not actually anonymous. You can show a picture of yourself, give your full name, and say whatever you want, but still have the benefit of taking your time to think about those words and knowing people can't see your reaction. This can be greatly beneficial to people with social anxiety. Are you one of them? If so, tell us how technology has helped you.
