Scientists have evaluated social isolation in many studies, and have determined that it can lead to a host of mental, psychological, emotional and physical problems including depression, anxiety, somatic complaints and many others.

While the above studies show actual correlations between social networking and negative consequences, others argue that many other negative consequences may exist that have not yet been studied.

Although advertisers have permission to gather information about users, it can still make someone feel like a statistic on a chart.

While many users feel their personal data is safe on social networking sites because they have set high levels of security settings, research suggests this is not the case.

This fear is also defined as "the inhibited capacity of an individual, because of anxiety, to exchange thought and feelings of personal significance with another individual who is highly valued".

Fear of intimacy has three defining features: content which represents the ability to communicate personal information, emotional valence which refers to the feelings about personal information exchanged, and vulnerability signifying their regard for the person they are intimate with.

Hyper-networking was also associated with depression, substance abuse, poor sleep patterns, suicide and poor academic performance.

While on the surface it appears social networking brings people together across the Internet, in a larger sense it may create social isolation and even addiction.

Social networking can sometimes result in negative outcomes, some with long-term consequences.The term can also refer to a scale on a psychometric test, or a type of adult in attachment theory psychology.The fear of intimacy is the fear of being emotionally and/or physically close to another individual.According to a 2010 Northeastern University and Max Planck Institute for Software Systems study, researchers created an algorithm to discover an individual's personal attributes by examining the one thing that most people leave public even when all other privacy settings are place: their friend list.Using the algorithm, researchers were able to infer many personal traits merely from friend lists, including education level, university attended, hometown and other private data.

While social networking has clearly demonstrable negative impacts, it is most likely here to stay.
