I recently had a friend go through bankruptcy, divorce and loss of many business connections. He found me on Facebook and I was able to help him through it and brainstorm on what he would do coming out of this depression. Later, we met up when he was driving through town. The subject of Facebook came up and he said:
"I wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for Facebook"
Without effort, I could tell you a dozen similar stories.
I also have known people who get obsessed with sitting online, posting meme cards or that crap that's made for lonely people to share. Since I've not done a research study, I'd have to guess that there are possibly more of these in society, and thus Facebook. And that's my point. The platform reflects the population. The correlations reported are true.. the causation a fantasy.
