Is facebook making you lonely

 If you want to get a lot of attention on the internet, blame the internet for causing people’s deepest problems. The Atlantic learned this in 2008 when it published a cover story headlined “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” The digital dust storm that kicked up was such that the magazine felt compelled to follow up with a story asking, “Is Google actually making us smarter?”

Now here we are again with another cover story, this one by Stephen Marche, posing the question: “Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?”

For me, facebook doesn't make me lonely.  It makes me feel more connected to friends and family that live far away.

I don't facebook, and I don't twitter. 

A number of Yahoo groups that I've belonged to migrated to facebook. At which point, I bowed out.
