ABSTRACT

This research looks into how different types of social groups and online participation effect sentiments of social isolation in Korean society. We begin by defining perceived social isolation (PSI), which focuses on the emotional aspect of social isolation compared to the concept of social isolation which is defined as exclusion from social networks. We use the 2020 Survey for <Current Situation of Social Integration in Korea> pooled data. The results show that members of the primary group created based on intimacy are less likely to fall into PSI than members of non-primary groups, also known as the secondary groups. Furthermore, intimate interactions between members of social groups are more significant than the ways in which members of social groups communicate to alleviate PSI.
