( A Beady eye though less than twenty-second read)
A smart phone is a modern-day distraction that is so common, it’s hardly noticed any more, demanding our attention multiple times a day.
We are becoming irrevocably immersed in our digital lives, prioritizing the virtual world over anything else.
We are losing the personal touch, losing the art of conversation.
You can measure romance by the number of words you can type per minute.
Relationships only seem to be real once you make it Facebook official.
There Is no doubt that those dedicated to their smartphones put up a barrier between people. Compulsively carry our smartphones with you wherever you go can make you a very boring person.
You need to set some boundaries for your smart phone usage.
It is not some magic self-defense tool capable of protecting you from all that is evil in the world.
By allowing technology to interfere with or interrupt conversations, activities, and time with romantic partners – even when unintentional or for brief moments – individuals may be sending implicit messages about what they value most, leading to conflict and negative outcomes in personal life and relationships.’
We can let these devices overrule our entire lives if we allow it.
Social networking doesn’t count as socializing.
Anger can be too easily impulsively shot out in an email or text.
You don’t receive smiles, hugs, laughter or touch or the sound of voices. See each other, hear each other and touch each other. And that can never be conveyed over technology of any kind.
The mystery of getting to know someone is gone. Sometimes that’s a good thing, but the fact that it’s a forgotten practice is a little sad.
The percentage of phones dropped into toilets has risen dramatically over the years. That’s a scientific fact.
Put your damn phone down and look people in the eye. Have a conversation. Don’t worry about what you are missing on Twitter. It will still be there when you are done socializing with actual humans.
I do think we’re all kind of in this big, worldwide reality television game and it will seemed like terrible unlucky to be dead on Facebook.
