Mobile Devices and Society

I bet a lot of people can’t even live without their mobile devices. In 2013, on average, a single user checks their phone 150 times a day. Nowadays, people are increasingly choosing to surf the web and interact with other people using their mobile devices and its applications such as Facebook, twitter and so on. Smartphones or tablets are the current trends for modern people to support their life style.

 Mobile devices have become a staple of our society, with everyone from elementary school kids to senior citizens owning at least one, use mobile apps and texting features and these technological inventions have made our lives a lot easier. Some questions the impact they have on the relationships we have with one another.

In a good way, mobile devices do help people stay more connected with family and friends, but should not be using it beyond control. In our society, mobile devices are changing our interpersonal communication, people keep checking their mobile phone whether they are on date, going out with their friends and updating their status from their current locations.  Based on my experience, I was asking my friends why they keep checking their mobile devices especially in social media networking application? A simple answer came out from them “they are afraid they might miss out something”.

People like to interact and communicate in this way? I guess so? Mobile devices allow people to communicate without even seeing each other or hearing a voice and this has brought a massive change in the way of communication in our society.

I have seen people at the café with a bunch of people sitting together without any interpersonal communication. All the people are busy with their mobile devices (tablet and mobile phone) and prefer playing with social media applications, and definitely this is not going right. So, mobile devices have changed not just the way people communicate but also the way people act.

Some people rely on their mobile devices for everything. Mainly due to the fact that some mobile devices can do just about anything. And some people believe the more features they have, the better it is. Mobile devices and its addiction is one big social problem. Mostly, teenagers and young generations are engaged on their mobile devices all the time, this can cause distraction in their studies.

Today cellular devices can be very negative at times and may cause a lot of problems, but if used properly, they can be a very useful and wonderful. All mobile devices users need to learn how to use and how much they should use before they get into any severe problem. And make sure we don’t let them come between relationships with other people as often is it being seen that such features or applications accessed by mobile devices are creating problems between people.

Mobile devices are becoming a hazard to our society, mobile and tablets are becoming ever more prevalent and they are few areas of our lives not becoming altered by the growth of mobile technology such as all the apple devices. I’m just too worried the relationships between parents and children, friend and friends will change the generation of our communication.

The use of mobile devices seem to be a mandatory device for the modern age, as it gives us access to voice and data services in almost every part of the world. On the hand, studies have found that the radiation mobile phone and mobile devices have a negative impact on long-term health.  Mobile phones also cause germs to be spread more easily because of the phone’s close proximity to the mouth.

well, i think in this modern era people are still prefer using a mobile devices as a tools for communication purposes and also to support the power of exclusive technologies like EDGE, GPRS, Wi-Fi, etc. and i hopes doesn’t change our relationship in society.
