Interaction with the Internet has begun to replace face-to-face communication. The change in the demographic and social structure of the population has reduced the communication with family and friends and directed people to the internet. The more time a person spends on the Internet, the less time they will spend with family and friends. This situation may lead to psychological problems related to loneliness. Social networks such as popular Facebook allow many interactions to take place. Nevertheless, Facebook, video games and even virtual reality are not enough to eliminate the feeling of loneliness. People are social and therefore it is important that they have close relationships with other people. Internet addicts want to escape the difficulties of life, but there are ways to solve the problem of loneliness without using the internet. In this study, it was tried to reveal the relationship between teachers' internet usage habits and loneliness level. Field research was used as the method and data were obtained from 80 participants. It was found that the teachers who participated in the study did not feel loneliness in general, but the loneliness levels increased as the trust levels increased. Again, teachers were found to be highly satisfied with life.
