While the Internet has provided us with an easy way to stay up to date on the latest trends and gadgets, many of us don’t use it as much as we would like. What many don’t realize is that there are other ways to stay connected that might not require an online connection. Some of these options include the old fashioned way of getting your mail or messages through a post office box, or the more modern way of sending your messages through text messaging.
I like reading my email, but I don’t get as much time as I used to, so I’ve been using my phone more and more. It is very convenient to read messages and emails in my phone, but it is still inconvenient to have to hunt for them. I can’t stand the feel of a phone that makes it so hard to find my friends and family.
Some people actually hate their mobile devices, or they feel like they can never really get them to cooperate with them because they are so small. To be fair, the only people I would say who dislike their mobile devices are the ones who don’t use them. I am a huge fan of mobile phones, so I love them and use them for many things, but I wouldn’t be completely comfortable with the idea of not using them for all the things they are capable of doing.
To be honest, I hate my mobile phone. Not because I don’t want to use it, but because it actually makes it impossible to communicate with my friends and family. I can text and email, but I can’t really see each other or talk on the phone. I rarely have the opportunity to see anyone IRL, so I don’t always know how to respond. It feels like I have to do it all on my phone.
ive been using my phone for years now and its such a great tool. For example, I was on the roof of my new house cleaning my windows when I noticed my phone was in one of the open windows. I looked up and saw that my friends were on the roof and they all saw that I was on the phone. I was like “are you okay?” and they said “yeah, we were just talking about you.
I think its because we all live in the digital world, so we tend to only talk to a small amount of people. We don’t have to meet too often to get to know each other. So when we use our phones, most of us don’t even get to talk to each other.
You’re probably right. I feel like I’m in a digital world too. I have a Facebook account which I use to keep in touch with friends. Facebook does a really good job of letting us know who we’re going to bump into and how we’re going to be of service to them; but it doesn’t have the same reach as the phone.
A recent study found that even though we’re spending half a day a week on Facebook, there’s still a lot of ways we’re not using it. When you’re not actively using your phone or email to communicate with someone, you don’t realize it. You don’t realize that the people you’re checking in with are not the people you actually might be getting a message from. We, as humans, tend to be a lot more aware than we believe we are.
How many times have you clicked on a link, only to find that someone else has already posted a comment or retweeted you? How many times have you watched a video and thought, “Gee, I think I saw that too” and then realized you weren’t? Facebook has a way to measure the number of times you’ve seen a video. The number is called “like.” That number is called “like.
We all have a mental library of things that we’ve seen or heard. We have an idea of what we want to say about something and how to say it. We have a mental model of who we are and how people think. What we don’t know, however, is how to test our model. How many times have you posted something in your public Facebook wall that you think is funny or clever, only to find that someone else has already posted a similar comment to it.
