BBC Newsbeat were in contact with Jonny this week seeking comment on a recent US study reporting that high use of social media correlated with higher reports of being socially isolated. Jonny's commentary was played out on Monday's Newsbeat (6th March 2017), and is summarised online here:

Jonny pointed out that the US study authors make no claims regarding the direction of the relationship between social media engagement and feeling isolated, and that there is a lot of research showing that social media use can have both positive and negative effects on how users feel.
