Today, the presence of social networks in the social life of citizens has become an integral part of life. Although some of the benefits of these networks can not be denied, unusual use of these networks will have adverse consequences for society and individuals. In this regard, this research was conducted with the aim of investigating the effect of social networks on social distance (isolation) in students of Islamic Azad University, Shoushtar Branch, using a descriptive survey method. The statistical population of the study consisted of all students of Social Network members at Islamic Azad University, Shoushtar Branch. The sample size was estimated using the Lynn and Morgan tables for a confidence level of 0.95 and a maximum dispersion of 384 people, and the sampling method is also a multi-stage systematic. The results of this study have shown that the use of social networks has a significant effect on social isolation, the intensity of family relationships, membership in real groups, Internet addiction, identity crisis, disruption in personality formation, conflict of values, and the expansion of unconventional communication. But the amount of social networking based on the socio-economic base of individuals does not have a significant difference, although it varies according to gender, and men use social networks more than women.
