In relation to Aric Sigman's article last week (see thread: Is this forum bad for our heath?) I have found the following which seems to suggest the opposite:-
Ko & Kuo (2009) found that bloggers enjoyed an enhanced subjective well-being. Far from increasing loneliness, blogging (and its increase in time spent online) was actually found to be positively related to one’s happiness.
Shapira et al. (2007) found that older adults who used the Internet increased their overall well-being and happiness as compared to a control group who did not.
There’s a myriad of additional research studies that show there are many pro-social and psychological benefits of Internet use.
