I think that one of the reasons for this is our "car culture". I can get in my car, drive to the supermarket and come back home. My only social encounter would be saying "Thank you" to the cashier. Or I can stroll to a nearby market, chatting with people along the way. Which offers opportunities to interact with neighbors. I don't mean to suggest that quantity equals quality -- but I think that many people are very isolated, and cars, atms, self-checkout lines at stores, communities without sidewalks, and such -- decrease the possibility for social interactions. Which then may decrease the possibility for MEANINGFUL social interactions as well.
