My dad worked shift work in the 60's and 70's. I had scout meetings, baseball practice, etc. in the evenings growing up. We also had a 1 acre garden that had to be tended regularly during the spring and summer. Yet my parents found time to have a social life and had many friends.

So I don't think that those types of things have contributed to a retrenchment of social spheres in this generation over the past few. The things that I see that have changed are the use of social media, plethora of entertainment options, etc. Which I believe result in people reducing their real time social interactions with others.
