DOES YOUR SMARTPHONE MAKE YOU MORE OR LESS CONNECTED?

Smartphones have made us more connected than ever, with access to the whole world and a wealth of information at our fingertips. But has this cyber-connectivity made us, as a society, more or less connected in real life?

In two minutes this beautiful, poignant, short film created by actress & writer Charlene deGuzman, explores just what effect our smart phones have made on the precious moments that make life beautiful.

Do you think your smart phone makes you more or less connected? Share your thoughts!

Thank you so much for sharing this thought-provoking film! I often feel myself awkwardly asking my friends and family to put their phones down when I find it as a hindrance to our conversations. The engagement scene really resonated - had my fiancée had his iPhone in my face while he engaged, I would have chucked it across the room. I agree with the message of the filmmaker in that smartphones and their "advanced" functionality actually distracts from experiencing real life moments, while people try to capture them for sharing on social media.
