Smartphones: Can Smartphones Cause People To Be Self-Absorbed?

If someone wants to use the internet, they no longer need to sit in front of a computer; the only thing they need to do it to use a Smartphone. This means that one can go online no matter where they are or what they are doing.

As a result of this, going online has become a normal part of life as opposed to something one does every now and then. It is then easy for someone to take it for granted and to no longer appreciate what they have at their finger tips.

However, this can all depend on when someone was born and whether they are able to take a step back from how they are experiencing life. For example, once one got to a certain age, they may have started to use a Smartphone.

This is then going to be the only thing they know, and they won’t have anything to compare it with. Having said that, there is also the chance that they have had moments where they don’t use their phone, and this may have allowed them to realise how different their life would be without it.


Yet, there are going to be others who, after reaching a certain age, had to use a normal phone (or there may have only had a landline). In this case, they are going to have an understanding of what it was like to experience life differently.

But if they use their Smartphone all the time, they may begin to wonder how they would survive without it. It has then become an integral part of their life, and it could be said that they have then lost touch with how their life used to be.


It is often said that separation is an illusion, and Smartphones have allowed someone to experience a greater connection to others. Not only can they send messages, they can also experience face to face communication.

This can take place between the people one lives within driving distance from, and it can include people who live on the other side of the planet, for instance. Distance is no longer a factor, and just because someone no longer lives in the same area as another person, it doesn’t mean they have to lose touch with them.
