Technology is an enormously powerful tool which makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and relatives across the globe. It also provides us with tremendous information and entertain us. But at the same time, it has contributed to a more isolated life for people. There is no face to face connection with real people. Earlier, everyone in neighborhood knew each other by names. But now a days, because of our busy schedules and technologies, the connections between neighbors are vanishing. The feeling of loneliness has increased, which is the big health issue. This is something that we need to take seriously for our health. If we start interacting with more people, that might solve the social isolation and loneliness problems.
