Social media have been growing in popularity for years now. As the name implies, the activity is supposed to be social, bringing individuals together and promoting feelings of belonging. However, first glances can be deceiving, and social media have increasingly been associated with another phenomenon taking our 21st century society by storm: loneliness.

1 in 4 students in lonely... A new GEMH lab blog! https://t.co/F6hiqPXoT1
Student life is regularly considered as one of the best periods in your life. It usually takes place in vivid and dynamic environments, with lots of opportunities to connect to others, to hang out on the campus or in bars, to play sports together, to go on cultural outings, to exchange ideas, opinions and so on. This provides students with various opportunities for making friends. In fact, one never has to be alone and one could suppose that there is no reason for students to feel lonely. However, that is not what a recent survey on our Radboud campus tells us… One out of four students feels lonely!
