This paper deeply explores the phenomenon of social atomization and its extensive impact on the current situation and development of interpersonal relationships, focusing on how the information cocoons caused by the personalized recommendation system of social media and how the social distancing measures implemented during the COVID-19 epidemic have deepened this trend. Through these two specific examples, the paper reveals how social atomization has promoted the rapid change of interpersonal relationships under the background of centralized economic interests, scientific and technological progress, and the rise of individualism, leading to the disintegration of traditional social structure and the significant weakening of the connection between individuals. The article further discusses strategies to address the challenges of social atomization at the social and individual levels, highlighting the importance of promoting interpersonal connectivity through policy-making, community-building, and technology applications. Raising the openness and activities of public space, promoting the exchange of diversified information, and strengthening community cohesion are proposed as countermeasures, to promote closer and more meaningful social ties. Through a comprehensive analysis of social atomization and its impact on interpersonal relationships, this paper provides insights into understanding and responding to this complex phenomenon, while making specific suggestions for promoting social cohesion and improving the quality of interpersonal relationships to promote a more harmonious and closely connected social environment.
