Abstract

The use of smart devices has increased greatly in the last ten years with users reaching out to the possibility to do more with them especially in the networking front. In this context there is a need to understand the connection between users’ social demographic factors, their way to related to their smart devices, and the increasing adoption smart technologies in the industry 4.0 domains. This study was designed to evaluate the senso of belonging of a community using smart devices. In this way we evaluate intangible benefits that employees may gain from a more immerse relationship with their devices. We used a dataset of 586 anonymous respondent of an existing survey designed for capturing the relationships that humans develop with their smart devices. In particular, we investigate the relationships with smart device and particular background variables of the respondents using a chi-square test. The study showed that there is a significant relationship between users’ sex and smart device type and their dependency on smart device. Both male and females, tends to think that smart device enables them to connect with a larger community and smart phone users connect more to large community than other smart devices users. This study provided several significant findings that strengthen the previous literature works on subject matter. Certain socio demographics variables like age, sex and smart device type showed a correlation between smart device users and their tendency to stay in touch with a larger community via their smart device.
