Certainly, it will. People all around are becoming more and more technology equipped and thus falling in addiction to it. I have observed (and so would have many) that young people with smart phones and gadgets give less time to their real physical environment and people around them, and more to the ones they are linked with through the gadgets in their hands. They would talk less to those in front of them but more with those who are online with them.
This behavior, in the long-run, I believe would become an attitude that would reduce interpersonal skills and face to face interactions would be weakened. Weak face to face interactions reduce trust and thus the relationship and affection between the two too. Therefore, I find that the newer generation would certainly have difficulties with face to face communication because of apps.
