Mobile Phone Dependence and Mobile Phone Addiction among Engineering College Women Students
The world that people live in today is a world full of technological marvels. Everywhere of people look and every aspect of their lives has been influenced and molded by the plethora of gadgets and applications that have come up at an astounding pace to overwhelm and overhaul the economic, political, social and psychological fabric of our everyday lives (Yodida Bhutia, 2016). There is hardly an aspect of their lives and environment that technology has not touched and transformed. It is there in almost everything that they do in their daily life, the way they work and how they communicate with each other. For many of them, it would be deep to function without the conveniences that technology has brought about into their everyday lives. It is observed that the youth, especially the college going students, are the predominant users of mobile phones. They are usually the ones who are always curious and inquisitive about the latest developments in communication technology. They try to find out the different applications and features of a new technical invention. College students are at that age where they feel that they need to keep in touch with their friends every second, every minute and every hour. They want to know about the latest happenings in their friend’s life as well as share theirs. Mobile phones allow for an easy, fast and convenient way to keep in touch with their friends and family. It enables them to keep in touch with their family and friends anywhere and any time of the day. (Amanda Tariang, 2016).
