Can New Media = Social Acceptance?

There's no eye contact
Silence or slow responses are ok
Even ignoring people is more socially acceptable

This is all great news for my almost 14 year old son who is High Functioning Autistic.  He's so high functioning that at first glance you'd never know, but when his peers spend just a little time with him they realize something is "different", but they just aren't sure what it is.  My son is socially awkward, but social networking may save his teen social life!
