The changes in population demography and technology have made social connections more and more difficult, although fundamental to human nature, health, and well-being. A review of the theory and measurement evolution of social relations and their early empirical evidence is analyzed in this chapter. We consider how social relationships have changed over time and how the fundamental characteristics of social relations have shifted through analysis of different techniques for the digital ranking. The emerging impact of technology on contacts, particularly on the evolving ways in which technology can be used to strengthen, decrease, maintain, or prevent social relations is also discussed. The role and influence of the smart Internet in the negative as well as in the positive aspects of these new technologies on the well-being of smart people are elaborated. Successful navigation of our complex social environment calls for the ability to identify and judge others’ relativity. Social comparison processes are therefore very important and contribute to intelligent individuals and urban development for efficient interpersonal decision-making.
