There are positives to this too.
People like me prefer nothing to do with humans, and are quite happy with technologies like the net to keep us occupied.
Not everyone is comfortable with people, seeing as around 90% of humans are wannabee murderers.

No person needs to live in isolation and loneliness, and must share life so that we will know the practicalities of our aspirations and common aims through discussions and debates, and not the theoratical fantasies or delusions that a coped up person will descend into.
I fear for those whom lives revolves around the computer. It only creates isolation and theories, which will not be of any use to anyone no matter how good or informative one learns from the net. And when we are alone, we will be easier to be dealt with by those who sought to enslave us - keep us entertained and glued to the comp, live to pay for access, and robots will we become...

On the other side of that though, there's a guy I work with that just plonks his kid down infront of the Xbox, the boy is a sweet little dude, but he has no communication skills at all, he's really going to suffer at school because of this.
Children and adults need interaction to be functioning members of society, of course some adults don't want that and that's fine for them to choose.

Young people are out of touch with real people because they are into their tech.
If we don't get in touch with people, that's it.
