A new survey by Meta and Gallup has found that almost a quarter of people globally feel lonely, with an additional 27% feeling a little lonely. The study involved over 140 countries, surveying about 1,000 individuals in each country between June 2022 and February 2023. Loneliness is recognized by the World Health Organization as a factor that can impact mental and physical health, with effects comparable to smoking and obesity. The survey also highlighted that young adults, aged 19 to 29, reported the highest rates of loneliness, potentially influenced by factors such as independent living without a family or job instability.
