My daughter is 12 years old and the only child. she is not motivated at all. I live in a bad neighborhood so she doesn't go outside unless we walk to a near by park. I want to sign her up for some activities at YMCA but she likes I dont want to do that. She is on the computer from sun up to sun down on this game on the computer. I keep telling her she has to do something outside of the house but all she does Is care about her online friends. How can I get my child motivated to make friends outside the home and off the computer all day?

You need to take the computer and games away from her. It encourages laziness and can causes depression. She's 12, she doesn't need online friends. She needs real ones to help her continue her social development.
