Why Social Media Makes You Lonely

About the Video

Everyone wants to know how to manage the digital economy. It’s here to stay, we say. The Internet has disrupted the way we work, learn and play. The Internet of Things is on the way.

You decide. Are these issues problems, or just issues of change management?

Are we more lonely now than ever before?

Think about it.
