My Aunt V., creator of the word “Rovenge,” has come up with another neologism:
e-social: A subset of asocial, where someone is so distracted by electronic devices that he ignores the people around him.
Inspired by watching a high-end SUV pass us one night with both flip down DVD players on for the back seat. I felt sorry for the kids, who will grow up never knowing how to fight with a siblings in the back seat.
If the e-social person is focusing exclusively on his phone, I would also suggest the term “cell-centered.”
