the internet encourages social isolation is not necessarily true

More than 50 percent of Internet users who live with a spouse and at least one child go online with another person at least a few times a week, the survey found. Asked about the impact of new technologies, 47 percent said they have increased the quality of communication between family members, and the same percentage said there had been no difference. – an interesting article on cnet shows that the idea the internet encourages social isolation is not necessarily true; rather sometimes it is just the opposite.
