Study: Social Media Addicts Struggle To Make New Friends, Keep Old Ones In Real Life
Social media addiction makes it harder for people to make — and keep — friends in real life, a new study suggests.

That’s because relying on social networks to connect with one another leads people to go out less and worsens friendships, according to a survey of 3,053 British adults commissioned by the French alcoholic beverage company Pernod Ricard.

The survey found that six in ten respondents meet up with friends less frequently, with 55 percent agreeing that social media has made relationships with friends more superficial. Not surprisingly, the average person has drifted apart from seven friends, placing the blame squarely on seeing one another in person far less than they used. ...

Thanks for sharing, "QC" Your points are well made. As to my vast personal experience with the millions of young adults I run into here in Maine, I would agree with the study.
What I have also noticed is that people are using their smartphones even when they are in company with others. It seems like they do not know how to have a conversation, if it is not online. Maybe our language needs to be modified so people can speak in the same text words they use, and I have seen some of this, like 'BFF' meaning Best Friend Forever.
I think social media and the Internet in general reduces the patience that is needed to sustain a conversation--sometimes, you have to listen to people talk about things that you are really not interested in.
I have even heard that husbands develop a hearing defect in not being able to hear the frequency that their wives voices have.

Odd study and odd findings. So, based on who paid for the study, they are supposing that getting together and drinking alcohol socially is an important aspect to building and maintaining friendships. Social media supposedly prevents people from drinking socially, so therefore social media is bad for friendships...and the Pernod Richard company's bottom line.

I'm no fan of social media...except SA....but the rationale here is all backwards and upside down. Social media may not be the best, but this story smells funny.
