Why Gen Z are the loneliest generation of adults

Why Gen Z are the loneliest generation of adults

Review: Today Social media presenter Aziz Al-Sa’afin spoke to Duncan Garner of Newshub about how Gen Z (adults aged 18-22) – who have used the internet since a young age – are the most lonely generation, according to a US study by Cigna. The radio participants speculated that it is directly related to Gen Z being on social media instead of being out interacting personally with others.

On the other hand, the report found that social media use alone is not a predictor of loneliness; but those “individuals who are less lonely are more likely to have regular in-person interactions, are in good overall physical and mental health, have found a balance in their daily activities, and are employed.”
