Smartphones > Socializing in Person?
Now a days, people don’t really hang out how they used to. Every since smartphones took over the world, people have been so focused on them that they don’t realize this isn’t great in the world. I mean, come on. We can’t deny the fact that every time we hang out with friends, family, and boyfriend/husband, we always at some point start using our phones as if we were alone. I can’t say I haven’t done it because then I’d be lying. You can’t say you haven’t done it because then you would be lying. We can’t just sit around and think we’re innocent because we’re not. I miss the old times when phones weren’t such a big deal because that’s what’s holding us back from interacting with others. Maybe we should just turn our phones off and put it on vibrate when we’re hanging out. I know it’s hard but it’s the best thing to do because sometimes people actually notice it with their own friends, family, and/or partner and they call you out on it. When people do that, it makes you seem anti-social which in reality is what we’re being. I say it’s time to change that!
