Will Ghosting Haunt Us?

Technology ate our manners. Ghosting. Will it haunt us?

The Christine Report discusses ghosting and the effects it will have post-pandemic
Ghosting Got Your Phone?

How did this happen?  At first, it was electronic gadgets at the table. We sit together but do not pay real attention to each other. Then, this became acceptable at work. Heads down at meetings buried in phones is a norm.

We were together- but not really. It grew from there. Its yet another thing to blame on the pandemic.

While physically indoors and kept apart, electronic communication was everything. Internet connected gadgets provided the immediate assistance for what we needed. We quickly realized that we could turn to our gadgets- or quickly turn away from them. We learned more ways to passively and quietly ignore and avoid each other.  

The Christine Report considers ghosting and back to the office effects.

Many are getting called back to the office. Public bans and restrictions are mostly lifted. Does that mean we soon have to face those we ghosted?
