I'm new to the site and I just signed up here in 2018. But I wanted to mention a couple of things that might help you in your question to seek answers from God.
First, God does not send temptations. This is mentioned in the Letter of James. So if you have already demonstrated that your talents and skills are being used in the right place, then I would qualify that as not being a temptation. You have spoken about having great joy while communicating with others, and I would imagine that this joy becomes even greater when you share the Gospel of our Lord.
Second, it's beneficial to start a blog that you can use to write down your thoughts. I recently started my own blog in December, and I write a new article each day. I pick out a song or video games, and write on a topic covered that is also covered in Scripture. So if I hear a song and read lyrics that talk about messiah, for example, then I talk about Jesus as Messiah, even if the song doesn't mention Jesus' name. The point of my blog is to reach out to both believers and unbelievers.
In my case, I also started a podcast, reaching out on SoundCloud. The address to my podcast is found on my blog.
Third, it's not easy to give up something that we really like but doesn't grow the kingdom. After I became a believer when I was a teenager, I gave up some of the music that I had listened to before and really liked. This is just one example. My point is that talking with people online needs to be viewed in favor of growing the kingdom and not just a way to pass the time.
Really examine if the Gospel is shared or not.
Like I said, I'm new here to the site, but if you want to check out my blog, here is the address: https://reverendmichaelsblog.blogspot.com.
In case you are wondering, my screen name is real, in that I am Ordained in the Christian faith for the purpose of Gospel proclamation. I follow Baptist practice and theology, but I have broken bread with many believers from different denominations.
I hope to see you here on the boards as I get to know everyone too.
May God grant you direction as you seek His face in your life.
