Social Media and Hyper Connectivity

Today, everything has changed. Fifteen to twenty years ago, we used to think about connection very differently than we do today. The concept of social media was a topic for daydreams, not reality. The people we knew, “Connections,” were linked to us in some tangible way; family, friends, work, school, or maybe someone you met on vacation. The technology of the day was time-consuming and presented a barrier to connecting; phones, letters, or face-to-face. Then we entered the hyper connection age, and the number of possible connections exploded.
