    I don’t think it comes as a shock to anyone, with the world being digitalized, humans have become excessively anti-social. We have connected ourselves so deeply with apps that everything we do is somehow calculated and analyzed by atleast one app in our smart phones. Just saying, but our smartphones are making us non-smart, if said in a subtle way!
