Hey you! Yeah, you!
(A young man appears on screen.)
Doesn't life seem to revolve around social media?
(The man looks down at his phone and images pop up above him: an envelope, a talk icon, a camera.)
But does that mean you're social?
(We see the man standing in profile. He's reading the text that appears on screen.)
When was the last time you had a conversation face-to-face?
(He looks down at his phone and a talk icon appears with the face of a woman inside.)
With someone you just met?
Is that even important?
(The talk icon disappears. The man turns his head towards the text that appears on screen.)
