Facebook is making us lonely

Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?: Oddly enough, the social network that seems to have copyrighted the word "connect" makes me feel the most disconnected from real life. And I am sure I am not the only one feeling this way.
"Yet within this world of instant and absolute communication, unbounded by limits of time or space, we suffer from unprecedented alienation. We have never been more detached from one another, or lonelier. In a world consumed by ever more novel modes of socializing, we have less and less actual society. We live in an accelerating contradiction: the more connected we become, the lonelier we are. We were promised a global village; instead we inhabit the drab cul-de-sacs and endless freeways of a vast suburb of information."
