Friendship declines as networked society grows?

blog*on*nymity - blogging On the Identity Trail:
A recent study published in The American Sociological Review suggests that "Americans have fewer close friends and confidants than they did 20 years ago"

Odd that the decline in friendship in the last two decades has coincided with the rise of the networked society. Are we losing close friendship as we cultivate less intimate on-line relationships?
