Cell phone addiction has plagued millions of people, ages ranging from 11 to 57 (Gorily 1).
Due to the mass addiction to cell phones, it has affected our behavior, our economy and including our environment.
Our children are becoming more illiterate and cell phones are one of the major offenders (Gormly 12).
Cell phones are a great piece of technology, but because of that it affects our economy.
But children that grow up using these terms and text language won’t be able to socialize efficiently and they grow up to become illiterate.
Studies show that students in middle school have literacy and grammar scores that are two times lower than that of middle school students 20 years ago in the United States.
The younger generations are losing communication skills due to their addiction to their cell phones.
Personally I do not own a cell phone, but from my personal experience in playing video games it made me lose social skills.
With the lack of communication, people are becoming less and less capable of expressing basic emotions and basic needs.
The ability to communicate behind a screen versus face to face gives one confidence in their social skills but at the same time it hinders them from experiencing actual communication.
