should "solutude" is a better lifestyle nowadays?

In recent year,many people think highly of lifestyle of isolutude . They tend to spend their free time alone,or playing games and surfing on internet,without stepping out with their friend and hanging out with their families .This phenomenon sparked a very spirit debate . So, how about your opinions ?

    Being alone, to my view, distract us from 'band instinct' to follow others, it gives an opportunity to think and approach your opinion with less influence of others, solitude gives originality.
    But being alone for long can result in depression; as we all know, we are social creatures, we need others, we need others to reach our goals, to feel happy and so on.
