How important is it that I use the formal and informal phrases at appropriate times?

For example, if I just met you on italki and I say "Ciao!" instead of the more formal "Salve!" is that offensive?

    Absolutely not. You can use Ciao or, if u wanna be more polite, buongiorno, buonasera, arrivederci. Usually on the web it's always ciao
