CELL PHONES DOWN

The Phone Stacking Game: Let’s Make This A Thing

Posted Feb 4, 2012 by Anthony Ha

Here’s how it works

At the beginning of the meal, everyone puts their phone face down at the center of the table. As time goes on, you’ll hear various calls, texts, and emails, but you can’t pick up your phone. If you’re the first one to give in to temptation, you’re buying dinner for everyone else. If no one picks up, then everyone pays for themselves.

You can explain the game in a few different ways. Most obviously, it could be a protest against the incessant, unthinking use of cell phones during social gatherings. Or maybe it’s a game that acknowledges the new reality and tests your willpower accordingly.

Personally, I like to think of it as a free market exercise.

After all, people love to say, “Sorry, but I have to take this.” Do you have to answer it? Really? Is it that important to you? Great, then you can pay.

CELL PHONES

Are you trapped on the technology treadmill?

Does your life involve jumping from email, to tweets, to instant messages, to texts, to voice messages, to incoming mobile calls? Do you feel that you must stop what you are doing every few minutes and take a quick look at that text message clanging on your mobile or check the weather report on the internet or read the email that flashed a few lines on the edge of your screen as it plopped into your inbox?

Welcome to the technology treadmill

The new virtual world where we all work harder but get less done and where our hopes and dreams are dashed on our high-tech keyboards because we don’t have time to pursue them.

The information below is directed to teenagers but I believe it’s safe to extrapolate to young adults and older adults.

How Have Cell Phones Impacted Teenagers’ Socialization

Mobile phones have had a huge impact on how teenagers socialize with both their peer groups and family members. This form of communication has changed aspects of teenagers’ everyday social life by building their personal and group identities, their social relationships and social networks, and allows for them to engage in intense social interactions with members of their peer groups beyond parental control.

In the research article “The Impact of Mobile Use on Teenagers’ Socialization” the researchers did an experiment to see how teenagers believed mobile phones impacted how they socialize. The researchers made a questionnaire asking questions about their use of mobile communication. After the study was conducted and the results were analyzed, the researcher believes that it is pretty obvious that the use of cell phones have increased social interactions among teenagers.

With this being the first empirical study of this topic, however, it is suggest by the researchers that more studies should be conducted before any solid conclusions are made.
