The invention of mobile phone was one of the biggest inventions of the 20th century. Initially mobile phones were used to make a call and they were usually larger in size. Then mobile phones began to shrink in size and an idea to send a text message in addition to the voice communication, arrived.
Today smart phones are commonly used by a very large number of people, as many social media and gaming applications can be installed in smart phones, almost 77% of smart phone users in our country are just 21 to 30 years old. But it also has some drawbacks as our youth is spending a lot of time on using smart phones. Because of the excessive use of smart phones and other electronic gadgets, our interaction with our family members, neighbours, friends and relatives is decreasing, which makes us narcissistic; we don’t know about our environment and what’s going on around us. Mobile phones are also hazardous to human health because of the emergence of different types of rays.
We should reduce the usage of mobile phones. Moreover, we should not make it our hobby to use it without necessity.
