Hello my dear
thedailywhat:

Weekend Read of the Day: Esquire columnist Stephen Marche investigates how Facebook and social media have made us more densely networked — and more lonely — than ever.

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.
