    Hi, I am a student in UK. I believe loneliness has long been ignored by academic world. As there is growing trend to participate in online communities, how non-lonely and lonely feel about online brand communities should have value of study. My dissertation study aims to learn more about lonely and non-lonely individuals and investigate whether participation and interaction in online brand communities affect what they feel compared to real world.I do not know whether it is correct to post the survey in here but I do believe that the academic world should understand more about loneliness. It is appreciated if you can spare a few minutes to participate in the survey. Data will be treated strictly confidential and used for academic purposes only.

    It is appreciated if you can discuss here or provide some insights in the questionnaire.
