The limitations the COVID-19 pandemic has imposed on us are accelerating our reliance on social media and online life. For now at least, our new normal means living life extremely online. Will this new normal continue in a post-pandemic world?

Our editorial series Culture+ looks at trending topics and events with an eye toward what they reveal about our shifting culture. Culture+ Trends is a special installment of this series, that breaks down the macro-trends impacting our audiences and businesses.

Our new Culture+ Trends video Extremely Online, examines what’s happening as our growing addiction to social media and smartphones intersects with the unavoidable need to be online to connect with others while in Covid-19 quarantine.
