One of the many, MANY terrible things about social media is that it feels like it might be replacing real human interaction . . . so even though you’ve got a thousand “friends,” you’re just a lonely hermit.
Well . . . apparently not. According to a new study out of the University of Kansas, there’s no connection between how much time you spend on social media and how much time you spend face-to-face with people.
In other words, social media doesn’t make you lonely . . . because there’s no guarantee that just because someone’s active on social media, they won’t also have an active social life offline.
