Is Facebook making us lonely? that right their is a very controversy subject while some people would agree and while others will disagree. I personally would agree with the article and say that Facebook does make people lonely in many ways maybe even more depending on the situation and the person itself. The reason I believe that it makes people lonely is because people spend a lot of time in the social network trying to impress their pears that they forget about other things such as hanging with their real friends and focus on school. But the real reason that Facebook take a lot of peoples time is because it allows you to be anyone that you want to be picture editing can allow you to look the way you want to look and allow to get the attention that most people always wanted in real life by spending lots of time posting pictures and status that will get you like that symbolize attention and acceptance that most people in the network crave.
