I found interest in this topic because as I’ve grown up cell phones and technology have become a bigger part of the world. Not many people had cell phones when I was young and in what felt like an instant everyone around me had portable phones. It was not until more recently though that text messaging became a big thing. People would rather text message then speak on the phone and it is leading to the fact that people can’t talk to other people face-to-face. It seems easier to write what you have to say then say it to the persons face. I wanted to look into this topic more in depth and see if cell phones have really helped or hurt relationships.
