Do Cell Phones Improve Communication?

Do cell phones actually improve communication? Or, are they destroying it? While walking around downtown yesterday, I noticed that no matter which direction I looked, it seemed that everyone was talking on their cell phone.


It didn’t appear to matter if they were on a date, or an outing with their family. The moment their cell phone rang, the people they were with ceased to exist.

When did we stop talking to each other face to face? Don’t get me wrong. The convenience and time saving benefits of a cell phone are numerous, but I wonder what that convenience is costing us in terms of our relationships and families. Perhaps equally important to owning a cell phone, is knowing when to turn it off.
