Social networks are more prevalent than ever.  A new survey proves that social networks actually do not isolate people from real-life interactions.

According to the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project; members, or users of social networks like Facebook, “trust” more, thus have more close friends, get more social interactivity and support compared to their non-networked counterparts.

Conducted among 2,255 respondents from October 20 to November 28, 2010– the survey found that, when “all else being equal”, people who use social networks have 9 percent more close ties in their overall social networks, than other Internet users.

Social network users are also more engaged in politics, current events, business and trends than people who are not on social networks.

Of Internet users in North America, 59 percent use at least one social network. That’s 25 points up, from 34 percent in 2008.
