Is there a connection between Social Networks and Being Lonely? We’re replacing relationships with technology.

The above video quote’s Sherry Turkle’s TED talk – “Connected, But Alone“, and Dr. Yair Amichai-Hamburgers hebrew article – The Invention of Loneliness.

Do you believe we are more alone today in our “social” world? Are we collecting friend’s like stamps, caring more about quantity than quality? Are we sacrificing conversation for connection numbers, spending more time pretending to be who we want to be, instead of presenting ourselves as we are?

Why are we expecting more from technology than from each other?

Here is Sherry Turkle’s original TED talk.

Let’s not live alone together.
