Smart phones have quickly become the cornerstone of many people's lives. It is not strange to see people peering intently at their phone screens, seemingly oblivious to the world around them. To some, especially from older generations, the lack of human contact between people due to increased use of technology is akin to the degradation of society. However, such a view is small-minded and ignores the benefits that technology has brought to humanity.

It depends on how we use it as to whether it makes us more or less lonely.” Technology will not isolate us if we learn to control our time to use it.
