Connectivity – Are we living in a hyperconnected world?
Connectivity, originally used to describe the connection between two electronic devices, has become a social concept. It is also used to describe the intra- and inter-organizational interactions (Kolb 2008) and as such has formed the term hyperconnectivity, the use of many systems and devices that enable a constant connection to persons e.g. via social networks and to other sources of information.
I will examine the evolution of the concept of connectivity and will present one of the various effects of person to person, person to machine and machine to machine interaction based on current research.
