The closer look we take at the world of human relationships, the more evident is an explicit paradox: cell phones, whose major function is assisting communication, hinder… communication…
Virtually everyday we face outright Phubbing from our friends and relatives; we start to forget how to pay a compliment using words… without resorting to emoticons and other symbols.
For information. Phubbing (derives from “phone” + “snubbing”) – is a practice of paying attention to one's gadget while speaking to someone. We start feeling inner discomfort if we lose the capability to “stay online”; if we hear sound notifications, we are not able to concentrate on anything until we check who texts us.
Sometimes you understand in terror: you are not the owner of your gadget, the gadget is the owner of your thoughts and feelings! What is next? Shall we lose real ourselves in the world of virtual illusion of communication? At this pace, our cell phones will be soon deciding by themselves who you make friends with, who you meet and who you love.
We should not forget: the real world is much more important just as the normal human communication is. Do not become part of the “machines”, remain Humans!
