  • Aug 2 2013: Hi ! Thanks for your question.I believe that the most abvious cause of social isolation is 'internet and technology' people are becoming slaves for that era of robots and science.Everyone is bewitched by a specific thing like facebook , twitter , video games.They feel like living in another world wich is suitable for them.They wish if that virtual world exists in reality that's why the consequences are serious for instance lack of communication between people , psychological disasters , and of course isolation.Morever I think if there is no communication , no exchange ..it will lead to misunderstanding , fights and it's a pitty.Nowadays many people are endoctrinate :(
