About this submission
Every year smartphones become more adept to fit a large number of needs and interests among an ever-growing population. However, as the interest grows, so do the repercussions. With each new generation, fewer individuals communicate via face-to-face, and instead, prefer a screen-based approach to interact with each other. Unfortunately, as more individuals flock to connect "online," the few who remain without this channel are left to struggle to maintain their relationships, in addition to creating new ones. "Disconnected" shares the story of consequences to those who choose to interact with an offline approach in an online environment.
