Are we connected or socially disconnected…I personally believe that technology has reduced our social capital—the
relationships that bind people together and create a sense of community.
Consequences include decreased civility, loss of behavioural boundaries and increased crime. We must find ways to deal with our profound loss of
social connectedness.Even though technological advances have contributed significantly to the problem of isolation, the emphasis on individualism in today’s society has

compounded it.
