Five Tips To Help You Be A Smarter Smartphone Users

I'm really sorry I haven't been around here for a really long while, I've had a lot on my plate and it was difficult joggling them with blogging.
But I'm here now and I'll try to make up for lost time!

We all use smartphones but do we that there are certain things we do that we shouldn't be doing and vice versa?

Smartphones have become an integral part of life of people of all ages. But no matter your age, there are some basic ideas for keeping mobile phone use safe and constructive.

1. Share with care:
When sharing things from your device, be sure that they wouldn't hurt anyone's feeling or send a bad message about anyone. Once they’re posted, text, photos, and videos are hard to take back, they can easily be copied and pasted elsewhere, and they might end up there forever. Think about the people in them (including you!). Reputations are at stake.

2. Avoiding texting while moving:
This doesn't just apply to people that are driving, as there have also been reports of accidents that happened to people that were using their phone while walking.
Therefore, never text, send email, use apps or configure the phone’s GPS while driving, riding a bike/bicycle.

3. Don't speak loudly over the phone:
You shouldn't talk in a really loud voice while on the phone, as doing so might disturb people around you and violate your privacy(exposing your private conversations to third-parties).


4. Take Some Time Off:
This is a problem most smartphone users face, they get overly addicted to their device that they sometimes forget the real world exists.

Excessive smartphone usage can negatively affect sleep, concentration, school, and other important things that requires your focus. Sometimes you need to just drop your phone and socialize with people in real life(social media could never substitute this) or just take a short nap.

5. Share your location mindfully:
A lot of apps allow friends to pinpoint each other’s physical location. If you use such a service, do so only with friends you know in person and would like to share your location with.

I can say without a doubt that over 50% of smartphone users are guilty of at least one of the above things however we should try to change the ways we use our devices to stay safe and smart!
