I found these articles to be interesting because of the compare and contrast style we got from both articles about Facebook making us lonely.  I thought that the article supporting Facebook making us lonely is true to a certain extent. In the article they were talking about how you were able to connect to millions of people in an instant you still have this sense of loneliness. By seeing all of these interactions you expect to see replies and likes to your posts but because of this instant communication you feel like you have all these connections to others you get this desire to talk and share with others but you will always end up with this sense of loneliness. Another point that I wanted to discuss was the anonymity aspect that new technology provides. This gives users this mask that they get this false sense of security that they can make mean comments and feel like it isn’t actually them saying it because of this anonymous setting some social media sites allow.
