So don’t worry. You don’t have to give up Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and texting to solve the “New Loneliness” problem. Instead, we can use these tools to enhance our social connectedness. First, you can take a few baby steps: stop liking your friend’s posts, and comment on them instead. This makes your friend feel better and enhances your bond. Instead of texting so much, try a phone call. But even better than those, use your devices to find time to meet up face-to-face. Research suggests that people who have regular face-to-face interactions, but not regular phone calls or emails, were less likely to be depressed.
