Social Autonomy

As consumer levels of interaction dwindle, communication becomes autonomous

Implications - Socialization among younger consumers has degraded to be almost completely non-verbal with the use of social media and texting, but the disconnect is growing stronger as even the most rudimentary of interactions becomes automated. Scheduled messaging apps and social media generators appeal to the consumer who is "socializing" more than ever, but experiencing a far stronger disconnect than in years past.
