Cell phone and Technology Etiquette

I'm not sure if things have changed significantly in the past year or so or if I'm just becoming more aware of it lately. It seems that with more technology at our finger tips it is getting much more difficult to maintain an in person conversation.

I can understand business meetings where others have important issues to stay on top of, but if someone schedules a meeting with me, I feel obligated to give them my attention during that scheduled time and usually expect the same within reason. It's pretty tough to believe someone is being attentive if they're checking facebook or snap chat.

Lately in person conversations are tougher to have, let alone dinner. We've all seen it, 4-6 people at a restaurant table with 4-6 faces glued to phone screens instead of talking.

I read of a new "game" that I think is a great idea, at least for personal/friend meetings.

Cell Phone Roulette.

Smartphone Roulette The rules are simple:

1. When you sit down, place your phones on the table, face down. You may stack them if you'd like to be extra extreme, though this is not required.

2. Nobody is allowed to touch their phoneŚnot even if it rings, vibrates, or chimes.

3. If you check your phone before the meal is over, you pay the entire check. No exceptions. Even if you just lift that phone ever so slightly to see who texted you. Your treat.

You need a new buddy...

Second, it's a curse socially to US -- old farts like you and me. The kids who are living this stuff day to day just interact differently, and that will continue to evolve. Maybe face to face time becomes less important, but these people are probably straight up communicating more often than we did/do, are more plugged into each other's lives, and build larger social networks. Who knows.

Not for us to say it's good or bad. It just is.
bullshit..this is the dumbest bunch of text morons-period

you cant say as many interesting in depth things typing words as you can face to face. it would taking efing forever to get a real in depth thought out. When I text its - how can I say this in the quickest way possible- caring and feeling are out the window unless face to face.

That's what smileys are for, haha...

However, there are also some positives: It's easier to keep in touch with people living in different cities/parts of the world nowadays.

I had a buddy who would come over and visit and he would talk on his cell the entire time. Why would you go over someones house if that's all you're going to do?

yes but its still not true bonding human interaction. It dehumanizes people.

people texting etc in cars like morons, that article earlier posted here.

its not helping actual healthy relationships at all. and takes up time.

Cell phones have ruined a lot of good times for me, I despise them. About 7 years ago my cousin and I were supposed to go on a fishing trip one weekend. Right when we had our bags packed and were ready to leave his sister (my other cousin) called him and asked him if he could help her fix up a shop for her new business. We got stuck working the entire weekend for something I really wasn't supposed to do. After working and going to college all week I just wanted a break, I was fuming mad.
