The Internet Does Make People Closer

from the well,-duh dept

There was a study out of Stanford a little while back that said the Internet makes people less social, and it was quickly torn apart as people looked at the methodology and realized it was idiotic. Here, now, we have a study that seems to make more sense. It says that the internet tends to improve communication within families and among friends. I’m willing to bet this study doesn’t receive nearly as much press as the ridiculous Stanford one did.
