Mobile devices, social networks and other new media technology are becoming an integral part of every day and they have helped us in no small measure in enhancing our productivity, connecting with family and friends as well as improving our knowledge.
Most of us own and use different mobile devices and as well as belong to social networks we may have become so accustomed to this that we may not have noticed the negative side of all this.
Have you ever tried to stay away from any social network at for couple of hours without experiencing a craving to see what’s happening? How did you feel when you misplaced your smart phone only for you to locate it a few hours later? You can do some research online and for yourself the rising trend of mobile addiction.
As much as we may want to deny it, more people are getting addicted to their mobile devices as well as social networks. If they are denied access to any of this, it’s going to be a serious issue for them. I have friends who can’t do with out their blackberry smartphones, others must ‘Facebook’ or tweet everyday.
If all your mobile devices were taken away from you for one week without any access to the internet, would you remain sane for that period of time? Your thoughts and comments are welcome
