RIP Conversation: 21 Images Show How Smartphones Are Taking Over Your Life


Your smartphone gives you instant access to friends, family, photos, social media, work, and the latest breaking news… basically smartphones are taking over.

Simply picking up your cell phone and seeing alerts for new ‘likes’ on Facebook, or a message from your best friend sparks a chemical reward in the brain. This chemical reaction is what makes us addicted to our smartphones. In proof, the average user picks up their phone to check Facebook and personal emails by 7:31 am, often before ever getting out of bed. Throughout the week the average user will look at their phone over 1,500 times.

Your smartphone entertains and delights while also helping you stay more connected, but with every addiction comes plenty of drawbacks. The following cartoons perfectly depict how smartphones are taking over your life, in both funny and not-so-funny ways.
