Till a few years ago, there was more physical, real interaction and socialization in our societies

People used to physically interact with friends, neighbors, cousins, colleagues, etc., more in the past. There was no Kindle, and so physical books were shared. There was no iTunes, so VHS tapes [for VCRs] or audio cassettes or CDs were passed around. What's more, overall scarcity of stuff meant that people had to interact with each other. And there was no Yahoo Messenger, no WhatsApp, so the concept of interacting virtually or having "online friends" was either non-existent or nascent.

People don't meet or interact that much these days. Technology has a major contribution in this change.
