Society today is driven by technology. People are especially addicted to their phones in such a way that they literally cannot live without them. It is very interesting to think back to just some years back when cell phones weren’t used for anything more than to call. Today, cell phones are used for everything. As Kaila Schlimm described in the Talon article, phones are a life force for people these days. If you need to send emails, no need to grab a laptop, your phone can do that. If you need to access stocks prices, your phone can do that. Access to social media on cell phones has greatly contributed to peoples’ addiction with their phones. I came across a valid point in an article published by South University. Simply put, it said that the use of texting, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks as a form of communication is gradually eroding people’s ability to communicate meaningful and have dialogue. This is so true and is evident in the “I forgot my phone” video. The lady without her phone found herself engaging with herself rather than the people around her because they were all so interested in whatever was going on in their phones. In a way, people have become ethical egoists when it comes to their phone distractions. Instead of seeking to involve in face to face conversations, and conversations that benefit everyone, they rather are concerned with self-satisfaction and self-interest. People in our society need to begin assessing the impact that phones are having on their lives and really begin to make changes.
