Are Today's Young Adults Becoming "Generation Lonely"?

At least Suzanne Degges-White, Ph.D. thinks so. She argues that “Wi-Fi has turned us the vast majority of human beings into internet junkies, no matter what age we are. For many people, the time they spend connecting to the “24/7” internet swallows up a lot of what was once considered “free time” or even “working hours,” for a whole lot of us! Time spent surfing the web is really all about time spent disengaging from your surroundings and the people around you and, instead, wandering through the “webosphere” where nothing seems impossible, while, actually, everything is merely virtual.

So, it might sound like we are all caught up in some big wide web of connection, right? But just like in the virtual world, things aren’t always what they seem. In fact, research shows that the most connected generation in history is also the loneliest generation of all time. It appears that the need to actually connect deeply and genuinely with others is more of a primal physical need than people realize.”
