Dangers of Social Media (Protect Your Children from Predators)

Why would you pay so much attention to an inanimate, dead object instead of a living human right in front of you?

Cellular phones, one of the greatest inventions in the late 20th century, now have become the newest addiction in the world. Smart phones have become a necessity in many professions, however many individuals use it as an entertainment device overstepping its basic need in daily life. Times have changed resulting in traditions being lost and profound aspects of our lives cease to exist due to the small device known as smart phone, which was originally designed to simplify and connect our lives.

Most importantly, families have been suffering from the addiction to smart phones with habits of bringing technology to the dinner table, which was originally meant to replenish our stomachs and share quality bonding time. Walking into a restaurant, not only will you see food, delicacies, and waiters, you will also visualize a sea of heads, bobbed down, facing their smart phones while feeding themselves with whatever is planted in front of them. With the amount of lowered heads and silent dinners encountered in the presence of friends, family or acquaintances, “Why would you pay so much attention to an inanimate, dead object instead of a living human right in front of you?”

When smart phones became available to the general public, it was a great device to have for emergencies or on the go and still being able to talk to someone without the hassle of finding a pay phone. Unfortunately, those days are long gone. The addition of the internet and texting has deadlocked people's attention. One cannot go anywhere without seeing someone scrolling through their smart phone, i.e. while driving one can witness people driving with one hand, because their phone is in the other hand. As a result, the world is being consumed by smart phone zombies who'd rather spend hours sending millions of texts, checking subscribed social media sites or playing solo games.

Multi-functional smart phones have given us convenience, pleasure and technology. However, no matter how helpful the smart phone, we cannot ignore its negative impact on a great majority of individuals, especially our children who mirror our behavior. In conclusion, smart phone addiction is more dangerous than one would have anticipated.
