Social isolation

From Study: Internet use won’t cause social isolation | Digital Media – CNET News:

I found this interesting (and true, in our case):

“Frequent Web users are more likely to communicate with neighbors in person than those who don’t use the Web as often, Pew found. In fact, 61 percent of respondents said that they talk to a neighbor at least once per month. The study also found that bloggers are 72 percent ‘more likely to belong to a local voluntary association’ than those who don’t blog.”
