Implications - As the family home becomes increasingly digitized, the disconnection between members of a household is creating a generation that lacks the same familial relationships of years past.

Family households aside, the stark increase in those living alone over the age of 30 in North America is creating a disconnect that brands are scrambling to appeal to.
