On a personal level, the use of smart phones has become an all-purpose tool to keeping up with social media. In seconds people know about breaking news, where others have checked-in on Facebook, and are even able to keep up with the Kardashians. It is a fast and easy way to send a text messages to communicate with friends and family, but how is it affecting personal skills with face to face interaction?
What do you think? Has the smart phone increased or decreased interactions and communications between people? Has it limited interpersonal communication skills?
I think smartphones has increased communication among people, since right now you can connect with anyone around the globe and even meet them face-to-face with video call uprograms like skype. You can even meet new people through social medias and random chats. I dont think it has limited the interpersonal skills at all, since people still personally communicate with others when they go to work or school or just go out in public. In fact, its easier to meet up with people through the use of smartphones. You can just text your friends and hangout.
At the end of the day, it all depends on how you use your smartphone. Use it too much and you'll get drenched and left out from your surroundings and it might even make you dumb. But use it right and it could enhance your quality of life. The choice is up to you.
