“Facebook blues: Social media linked to feelings of isolation, study says”

“a new study has found that too much time on social media actually leads to increased feelings of isolation.

The study, published Monday in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, examined feelings of social isolation among more than 1,787 US adults between the ages of 19 and 32.

The researchers defined social isolation as the lack of a sense of belonging, true engagement with others, and fulfilling relationships.”
