    Default Equivalent of "See you later"

    Hello!

    What is the equivalent of "See you later" on the internet?
    Actually I can't say 'See you later' to somebody I've never seen before,
    and maybe will never see. Is there something special to say Good Bye
    on the internet? I don't like the word 'Good Bye', and I always say 'See you later' or 'See you soon'.
    But on the internet I will not see somebody later or soon. What could I write in this case?

    And what about phone talk?

    Thank you.

    On the Internet you might say:
    TTYL
    That means: talk to you later.

    In phone talk, if it's a business conversation, you might say "Thank you for calling" or "It's been nice talking with you."

    on a personal level, "Talk to you soon again" or "Nice chatting with you."
    And, yes, you chat on the phone also, not just on chat lines!

    Quite a few people just say "Cheers". The Italian ciao is commonly used by English speakers (even ones who speak no Italian).
