“You’re on the phone again??”
“Keep your phone aside and finish your food first”
“Are you texting your bf/gf”
“Why do you have a smile on your face? Who are you texting?”
You must have heard as taunts coming from our parents. If you have gotten away with these heart pinching lines then your teenage years were awesome.
“Mom I just picked up my phone half an hour ago”
“Wait a sec..just one last text”
“no mama.. I have friends as well”
“Give me a break! I’m way better than other kids of my age”
Little did we know that there are going to be people who are just going to overdo what we had just started doing. This was just staged one when teens were hooked on to there phones. Over the years social media has seen a trend of crazy and absolutely absurd stories. Human behavior has changed over the course of years. The first factor for this change was the Darwinian Theory and now we’re being pushed back into the hunchbacked zone thanks to excessive use of technology.
Earlier the internet was a popular meeting spots and finding the perfect match online. These stories were perhaps termed as breaking news or as internet success stories. The growing addiction and dependency on technology has raised concerned among medicine practitioners and psychologists.
People have bizarrely reached a level of utter madness when it comes to using social media or using any technology in general. I can imagine a day when using any gadget would be termed as a disease or mental illness. Terms such as selfitis or WhatAppititis have been coined as legal terms.
Strange or eccentric human behavior related incidents have are found at large, marriages made and fallen, love interests caught cheating or insurance companies finding out about not so sick patients.
Twittercide is the new suicide in town when a person is forced to leave twitter because of a growing addiction. A man named Larry, whose wife divorced him because of his twitter addiction. He also felt threatened when his son warned him to stop following him on the social networking website.
Huddled by technology and captured by social media, we have no idea where the next generation technologies will take us. With so much on our plate already, perhaps there are worse human behavioral issues to solve in future.
