Constantly using mobile devices keeps people from interacting with people around them and experiencing day-today life.

i think being on a phone helps because we are meeting new people and learning new things.

It can be both a good and a bad thing. I do personally think that it's not good to be on your phone all the time, even though all of us are guilty of being on our phones all the time. The more your on social media, and talking with random people you shouldn't really be talking to. It happens because we want to make new friends, but a lot of people don't realize that the person on the other side of the phone's screen, for all they know they're talking to a criminal. Someone who's a child molester for example. The entire situation could've been avoided, if we learn how to be less interactive with our phones, and be more interactive with our families, we are more likely to make a lot of memories that otherwise couldn't have been possible if we were glued to our phones.

Our devices actually help people come together from around the globe. We can make new friends, share things to people far away, and have information ready at our fingertips.

I think that mobile devices help you to interact with family that doesn't live close to you.

I agree because you can meet a whole bunch of people whom you may never meet but still form a friendship with or get to know them whereas it's not as easy to meet people in person and find out what you have in common with them.

I disagree because with mobile devices you meet more people around the world and there is time to hang with your neighbors throughout the day.

Mobile devices have there pros and cons but I'm neutral on the whole ordeal because they have helped me and hurt me in different ways, but my most defining factor is convenience.

People often associate the lack of socialization with the time spent using a mobile device. They also believe that the increased usage of cellular devices also limits the experiences a person will, well, experience. This point of view is wrong in so many ways. People can be "social" through social networking apps and, on the other side of things, a person can be antisocial and use their mobile devices to constantly learn new things and improve him/herself at the touch of a virtual button. A cell phone essentially is a small computer that you most likely keep by your side at all times. Think about the vast realm of possibilities of learning and careers that the invention of computers has brought along. This being said, cell phones can also be detrimental to a person in many ways. A person can become addicted to the flow of dopamine in their brains caused by people liking or responding your posts on a social media platform. Constantly seeking this can cause a lack of emotional response to stimuli outside of a cell phone screen. Eye problems have become common among people who stare at screens for hours on end. They're is no answer to this, but if you are seeking happiness through physical interaction, try and limit your time on cell phones. But, a cell phone can also be used as a universal learning device at the touch of a finger.

I agree with the idea that constantly using mobile devices keeps people from interacting with people around them and experiencing day-today life. Technology fatigue is a genuine issue in modern society. You can think of it this way, you need to use computers to get on school now, you need to check social media on your phone, you need to keep in contact with family members with technology, and we grow ever more reliant on mobile devices, computers, and other technology. We are moving to a point where all we do is take in information from computers all the time and eventually it becomes monotonous, we start to feel burnt out and stressed, we grow less motivated as we keep consuming technology in order to fill gaps in our schedules. As we keep growing dependent on technology, it consumes our lives and eventually what you grow to believe is fun, convenient, and useful becomes monotonous and you wish to stop.
Technology fatigue is an issue that has been exponentially increased during COVID-19 because we are forced to use technology more than ever, it is our only way to keep in contact with others, do school work, etc. And this creates an environment where you ultimately get burnt out on using it constantly, hours and hours a day. We overuse the technology that was created for our convenience and instead become reliant on it as a crutch rather than using it to help us. I feel as if we have become reliant on technology to the point where it consumes our daily lives and yet is the freedom to use the internet really freedom now? We feel chained more than ever to social media, we can't let go of our phones, computers, online games, etc. It takes over our lives eventually. This is ultimately the effect of our increasing reliance on technology. Keep in mind though, this is my opinion on things, it is not technology itself that is bad, it is our overreliance on it to the point where our lives revolve around it and we are unable to separate ourselves from using our phones or computers.

I think being on a phone is really useful because we can look up stuff,We can meet some new friends, we can call and video chat with people. I think most children like their phones mainly because of social media.

For some parents they think their kids donĀ“t need a phone because you could be doing something else rather than on your phones
