Aren’t All the Technological Innovations slowly destroying our ability to connect to people on an emotional - personal level?

Thanks to Internet - Mobile Phones etc. people now know more people than they did when all these things were not invented but then knowing thoese less number of people gave them the satisfaction of KNOWING THEM.

Now instead of making a conscious effort to meet we use these gadgets to communicate thus closing ourselves into our own cocoons and by using these gadgets isn’t the generations of today and tomorrow alienating themselves from sharing real emotions.
