Social connectedness is increasingly enabled and mediated by digital technology. This video describes Professor Mary Chayko's research into how social connections and communities are constructed and experienced in a superconnected society. Digital life is real life, she finds, and digitally-enabled connections prompt, rather than deter, face-to-face interaction.

The Superconnected blog, which includes relevant research, updated findings, and podcasts recorded by Chayko to accompany each chapter, is at https://superconnectedblog.com/
