Presentation abstract

In today’s generation, electronics such as a smartphone have become vital tools of importance for many. Studies like the article Watch Out:Cell Phones can be Addictive by Science News for Students, explain that college students spend roughly about nine hours a day on a smartphone, which is longer than the average hours of those students spend sleeping. Nobody has doubted that these devices are beneficial, since students can use them for educational purposes such as definitions, looking up facts, and research. With the constant use of cell phones, people have lacked the skill of socializing with others, which may trouble relationships with either a lover, family or friends, struggle with multiple distractions such as social media on the electronics, and develope an addictive behavior leading to having high dependency on smartphones. Using a smartphone for a long period of time, make students desocialize due to the lack of face-to-face interaction. Conversations between one another are often times replaced by social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Also, students are easily distracted during class sessions or even work hours with the use of a smartphone. Lack of self awareness such as driving or simply walking around to a destination is often being taken place due to the constant notifications, which requires one to be glued to the phone screens. Lastly, having an addictive behavior has its benefits, but smartphone usage has caused many to procrastinate: achieving a goal, accomplishing homework assignments, and studying for an upcoming exam. To overcome these urging disadvantages, managing time on social media and cell phone usage can help tremendously with the lack of socializing, decrease the daily distractions, and prevent having an addictive behavior with a smartphone.
