How do smartphones affect our lives in a positive way?
In today's society it is becoming odd to see a person without a smartphone. Smartphones have broadened our communication from a simple phone call, to being able to FaceTime and gauge the person's reaction, real time, no matter how far away they are. In this day and age, social media is a driving force in the communications. Smartphones allow you to take this social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, and put it right into the palm of your hand.

The main reason smartphones are ruining
society is because they cause people to be oblivious to their surroundings.

They are also causing children to spend less time outside, and more time indoors on Facebook, texting, or instant messaging.
