The Innovation Of Loneliness


Ah, the joys of social media. Is it making our life better or worse? The discussion continues….


While our focus is shifting towards individual achievements over community, more and more people are feeling lonely. They feel vulnerable, opening up to others for warm, friendly, heart-to-heart conversations. Then, along comes social media.

As people share and chat from islands of isolation, filtering and massaging information, they are undermining the genuine credibility of conversation. Bits and pieces of tweets, posts, and chats aren’t allowing people either to open up or understand others. Social media connection is often about presenting our best self - not our true self. 

Are these online connections actually helping with loneliness, or they are making it worse? Could this social media activity be chipping away at your quiet time as well, when you could think and reflect?

Learn more in this thought provoking, animated video based on the work of Sherry Turkle and Dr. Yair Amichal-Hamburger. And don't forget to share your thoughts below.
