Abstract: This article studies the dynamic between communication and isolation that characterizes our globalized world. Digital culture greatly facilitates contacts but does not avoid loneliness.

In the third part, some guidelines are indicated for responsibly inhabiting our culture and achieving a fair balance in our way of communicating.
Keywords: Digital culture, Communication, Isolation, Laudato si', Media.
