Humor: What society might think of you if you DO NOT use your smartphone
posted by Maxwell R. / Mar 07, 2015, 3:51 AM
So wherever you are, imaging a beautiful early spring day. The skies are blue, the trees are green, the birds are chirping, and the outdoors is just teaming with life.
As you take a break from whatever you are doing, and you notice the wonder of the outdoors, you decide to leave your smartphone in your pocket, a welcome change of pace so you can enjoy the wonder of nature. Anyone can appreciate such an idea right?
In today’s society, that may not be the case. In fact, you might actually stand out as some kind of weirdo. Don’t know you know you’re supposed to capture every moment with your camera to post on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook? Who just sits around and enjoys their surroundings anymore?
It’s funny, and telling that such a scene, as imagined by Nitrozac and Snaggy, could actually be considered odd.

Can also confirm here. Worse in our country, people judge their friends by the phone they have. Use a feature phone in front of them and they're going to ask "are you broke?" Or just look at you from head to toe.

This wasn't the case before 2007. Steve and Andy, what HAVE you done?!

From where I'm at, I'm the only one using my phone during public transpo, watches on my phone through wifi on my school,using it while walking on the campus. But doing so doesn't make me anti-social, it makes me different from the rest of the crowd

I actually found myself uncomfortable at the theatre last night, waiting by the women's bathroom for my girlfriend. I didn't want to seem weird so I got on my phone and had no data connection so I restarted my phone. So there I was just standing there staring at my phone as it was resetting, which also felt out of place. Clearly there is an issue here.

It's so true we're becoming engrossed in our mobile environment and despite all those social apps were actually being less communicative on a face to face basis so ironically we're becoming socially inept in that respect
