Smartphone's and their effect in society

  1. 1. Smartphone's and their effect in society <br />
  2. 2. What is a Smartphone<br />A Smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a normal phone <br />smart phones do affect productivity, communication in work place, social engagement and have an effect in education. I support the statement above this is because almost everyone has a smart phone and they use them in almost everything they do daily.<br />
  3. 3. Smart phones affect productivity/communication <br />These phones are addictive and this is bad because employees may lose interest in meetings as the boss may not have his full attention on the meeting.<br />It presents a lack of oral communication which can lead to miss communication.<br />Work may be delayed as people become dependable on these phones to do work.<br />decreased the interaction between workers<br />

  5. 5. Affects on social engagement <br />Smart phones use special applications which makes those people who have it only interact with those with the same phone<br />people do not listen to their friends as they are focused on the screen<br />People do not communicate oraly as much as they can communicate through many different social portals <br />
  6. 6. Affects on education<br />libraries and dictionaries are not used because they have built-in dictionaries and instant access to internet.<br />social networks are accessed in class or lecture and this causes a distraction from the information about what we are learning and limits our knowledge <br />Limits our use of resources such as encyclopedias and books. <br />
  7. 7. This shows the amount of Smartphone's that affect the market share (sybian &rim) <br />

  9. 9. How do smart phones affect in our daily lives?<br />Research has found that smart phones satisfy all social communication needs. this lead to addiction, lack of concentration and even lack of sleep. Smart phones have a huge negative effect in the workplace, because workers can not meet their deadline. <br />The aim of this research was to find out if it is worthy getting a smart phone? and how is it going to benefit the person buying it?.<br />Smart Phones are highly advanced and are good in multitasking, but they changing our lives in a negative way. people do not communicate as much orally and become antisocial. Students do not concentrate in class. People become addicted to the phone and dependable. These are the effects that smart phones have on us.<br />In conclusion: as good as smart phones are the negative effects are out weighing the positives <br />
