Digitized Bonding

Tech acts as an aid in strengthening relationships instead of a barrier

Implications - Though technology is often considered a barrier to building stronger relationships, it is now acting as an aid to bonding with loved ones. This is particularly fitting for Generation Z. Despite being seen as a group of "screen addicts" who rarely socialize in face-to-face settings, the youth generation simply uses technology as a way to enhance and deepen bonds with friends and family. Technology is no longer a solo pastime, but a way to unite modern society.
