hyperconnected

In general, hyperconnected refers to the high-tech communications of the 21st century delivered primarily by the Internet, all of which is 24/7 and never ceases. It encompasses radio, TV, phone and video calls, texting, email, blogs, forums, chat rooms, instant messaging and social media, as well as access to corporate data. The smartphone has been a major catalyst, connecting more people to more things than any other electronic device. See hyper.

On a Personal Level
Being hyperconnected also means that an enormous volume of information can be obtained about a person via the Internet. It is common practice to use the same email address or made-up username for every online account. In addition, users' Internet addresses (IP addresses) are a constant that can be used to identify them. See IP address.
