I look at for all the lonely people.

Yet, again, the not with a bang but a whimper phenomenon raises it's head. Almost three years ago the Homenet Project found, amid drumrolls and French horns, that:
greater use of the Internet was associated with declines in participants' communication with family members in the household, declines in the size of their social circle, and increases in their depression and loneliness.
Back then I wasn't convinced, but that isn't really that important. What is important is that today, even those who conducted the study are no longer convinced. But of course the headlines aren't quite as big this time.
