To be honest, I don’t see how this is even a relevant uestion. f course it is unacceptable behaviour to disrespect the people you are with by being buried in your phone, addicted to social media. owever, having said that, what exactly is one going to do about it? nd while this ‘ hubbing’, is unacceptable to us parents or other seniors, they seem to be okay with it. onestly, the future is theirs and some day, they will find a way to technologically scale this up into a useful and productive means and behaviour too. n individual may choose to not give their time over a meal or a coffee or even a business meeting to a person who is unable to be fully present with them. That perhaps, may be the only sensible and rational way to gently discourage the habit. y hope is that this too shall pass...and my fear is that something more ob ectionable may take its place. But again, the young are the guardians of the future, and to them falls the task of keeping our human-ness alive in the face of this exponentially invasive technology.
