even if you become a hermit, you cannot separate the social from the human. you can never go around one again, but the social is inherent. what makes us human is language. we are all connected through language. all thoughts in your head are social and all are language, that is only understood by fellow humans. if you go on top of a mountain with no one around, as soon as you have a thought, you are social, a trait shared by every human. there is no way to not have a thought. therefore there is no way to not be social. the social is the thoughts through language, not the physical interaction (although at first you have to be around humans to learn language). humans who are not taught language are not social and it has been said they are not human. by genus and specie, they are, but that is all they share in common. but there really have not been any humans that did not have some form of language in common. even ones kept in a cage, do see an occasional human to get fed or beaten or whatever people do when they keep children in cages. so, even those severly abused and kept in a basement, were social, not advanced, but social. there have been very few cases of abuse of this nature, fortunately.
