Transcript of cell phone addiction

Hazim Okanovic Cell phone addiction I will start my presentation with some questions:

1. Where is your cell phone right now?

2. What do you have your cell phone for?

3. You are doing something by your-self, and you hear your
cell phone ringing. It is not in the same room as you. What do you do?

4. Do you keep your phone near you when you are sleeping? Does anyone know what is "nomophobia"? The term, nomophobia, was first coined by British researchers in 2008 to describe people who experience anxiety when they have no access to mobile technology, like their phones. Recently, SecurEnvoy, a company that creates security for cell phones, conducted a poll of 1,000 people about cell phone use and nomophobia. The company found that 66 percent of people have the condition. David Greenfield, director of The Center for Internet and Technology Addiction "Cell phones are tools that should be used to enhance our lives," he warned, "not to destroy our interpersonal communication skills with those that we love." "We haven't even begun to see the impact that this technology has — it will become a worldwide epidemic. It's not here yet, but it will be." -researches in different countries about cell phone addiction
