PewInternet.org just released a new study on “Social Networking Sites (SNS) and our lives.” Asking questions of whether or not these technologies isolate people and truncate their relationships, the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project investigated online connections and relationships and the effect SNS may have on our society. In a November 2010 survey, Pew concludes that “there is little validity to concerns that people who use SNS experience smaller social networks, less closeness, or are exposed to less diversity.”
