Communication with smartphones in the digital age
A smartphone in hand embodies communication in the digital age. You no longer have to schedule your time to get information. With Internet access on your smartphone, you can send data (a message, an image, a graphic, music) and you can attach sophisticated data, that you have created or captured, to those communications. You can choose to access the data that is sent to you at your convenience. The smartphone gives you options and you can choose to use it to manage your life efficiently. However, most people don’t do that.
Most active smartphone users choose to interrupt when the phone tells them that new data has arrived. Especially when contacted by a friend who made a comment, started a new chat thread, attached a funny joke or picture, or a hint of a gossip update, most smartphone users stop a conversation with a person. real to interact with your smartphone. People have gotten into moving traffic while concentrating on the trivia someone sent them on their smartphone. The smartphone has become the industry’s favorite place to give you endless options on how to communicate.
Tell your life story to family, friends, and strangers on Facebook. Use Snapchat if you don’t want your mom to see the last YouTube video you posted. Organize your photos on a Pinterest board. Post a comment on Twitter. Most of the smartphone users actively use four or more applications (apps) on their smartphone that will allow them to participate in the social networking sites where their friends hang out. If Paul Revere had a smartphone, we would have learned in school about Paul Revere’s Google, posts, and tweets because he wouldn’t have had to travel anywhere. The Smartphone, a paradigm shift in communication, can subsume your life.
A communication tool should enhance, not become, in your life. During the sailing age, ships transmitted written communications navigating through large bodies of water. The captain of a ship can communicate from shore (or with another ship) using the flag semaphore to shorten the time required to deliver a written message. Wireless telegraphy, applied at the end of the 19th century, also changed the communication paradigm. With it, the ship could deliver a communication without navigating at all. Imagine the time, cost, and effort you saved. Look at your smartphone that way too. Use your smartphone as intended to get more value out of your daily life. # Tag1writer
