We live in a digital era, where we communicate using our phones, Facebook, instant messaging tools, and much more. We seem to forget to communicate with each other, and connect on a more personal level.

Sherry Turkle is a professor of social studies of science and technology, and she asks one of the most important questions in today’s world, “Are you feeling connected, yet alone”?

That is the topic of her TED talk discussion, where she discuss are we expecting more from technology, and less from each other.

How our devices and online personalities have redefined human connection? How they redefined communication?

What is the type of connection and communication you want to have with your friends, colleagues, and close ones? Those are the topics that Sherry touches, and leaves us thinking about where we are, and where we want to be.
