Social Distortion

Is there a connection between social networking and loneliness? Decidedly yes, this video argues. There are ramifications that come with spending an inordinate amount of time crafting the perfect online identity, desperately clamoring for "likes" and friending old high school acquaintances we would otherwise avoid like the plague.
