The internet was intentionally created to connect people with all of human knowledge. Not with other people. This was a side effect. And it has become a major (commercial) aspect of the internet.
How you use those gaps that occur when inventions are used for different things than what they were invented for, is basically up to you, if the options are fully functional opposites.
The internet (or probably is the World Wide Web the better term here) offers you to connect with people and with the endless, lifeless entertainment on unemotional servers. Still, not what you should judge the WWW for. It's just a side effect.
