In today's culture, does being so connected makes us feel lonelier?

I begin questioning this while doing some research for a project at work. Today's youth for example, and even the "not-so youth" are constantly connected to each other via email, texting, IM, chats, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and so many others. Does all this connectivity mean the end of "alone time"? Will people in the future even know the feeling of being alone? And how will they handle it if they ever are? Is this connection overload a reflexion of a fear of being alone?
