Cell phone use is different for everyone, but for me it's not that important unless it's from a family member or a friend. I’m usually never on my phone at school because you see the people you talk to, and it wastes your phone battery if you do. Some people may not be able to go through their day without there phone but there just over exaggerating because I think having your phone isn't a need it's a want. When I go out to eat with my family, I’m usually not on my phone unless it's for people that were meeting after or something.
I think it's a little different with friends because I’m on it with friends. I may use my phone a lot but it's usually after school after homework and other chores. I guess I never really thought of how much I use social media but I think I use messages more than media, because I grew up with a flip phone. Is being obsessed with phones a good thing or bad thing? I don't think that when parents use a phone that they are bored and don't have anything better to do. They are on their phones so they can check up on you so they don't have to worry. Sometimes it's because they are bored but usually that is not the whole reason.
I think our parents can be strict. It's only because they care, they may take your phone away for some reason but you’ll eventually get it back. Social media can make you seem and feel unproductive. “There are so many great things about it but also there is the dark side of it.” This quote came off US NEWS, and I think it is so important to know what you’re actually doing online.
