Humanity has always been limited in who we’ve interacted with. Until the 2000s when social media bloomed, most of us were really only connected to our families, our friends and acquaintances, and business contacts.
Today, everybody is connected to, well… everybody. We can interact with other people from all over the world, any time we want to, with no special training whatsoever. And that’s something to be excited about!
Many people are nervous about this new world of connectivity. From privacy issues to trying to keep up in the vast sea of social media, some people wish they could rewind and live in simpler times.
OfficeSource® has always taken a favorable stance on technological advancement. We see countless benefits of being connected to one another in this global online environment. If you’re apprehensive about online connectivity, and you cringe at the lightning-fast speed of technological change, consider the following benefits of connectedness!
Being Connected Helps Humanity Innovate.
Connectedness brings incredible communication, opportunity and innovation. When engineers, doctors, scientists and business leaders from all over the world communicate together, humanity benefits in wonderful ways.
Connectivity enables us to share valuable information, work together to create technological advancement, and collaborate to achieve breakthroughs in medicine. Clearly, this connected world makes humanity better day by day!
Connectivity Helps Unite Us.
Throughout all of human history, our perceptions of reality were primarily shaped by the specific culture we lived in. Sure, we could read about other cultures, visit other countries, and see news footage about what’s happening overseas. But for many people, any reality that existed outside their limited culture was deemed foreign or strange.
Today, for the first time in human history, we are only a Google search away from interacting with different cultural worlds. Our everyday exposure to countless unique individuals, infinite numbers of viewpoints, and vastly different ways of life makes us more enlightened and open-minded than ever before.
Now that we’re all connected, we can empathize with other cultures like never before, and celebrate the amazing diversity that exists in the world!

Connectedness is Worth it!
Yes, the connectedness created by technology is an adjustment for many. Social media has completely changed old models of business and marketing, and it has created new security concerns. Nonetheless, when you think about all the opportunity and knowledge these changes have given humanity, it’s clear that connectedness is worth it.
