Misuses of cell phone discouraged

| | No Comments

STAFF REPORT IBD: The penetration of cell phone in Pakistan has reached at almost 100 per cent as there is hardly any person having no cell phone especially youngsters. However, there are implications of young people using cell phones. Young people buy cell phones depending on the latest model and features.

Latest models inspire youngsters and the amount of money they spend on cell phones is too high. It is not surprising that the latest model does not stay “latest” for long. It is more of an accessory to be shown off than anything else.

“Having cell phones becomes such a necessity that people have to sacrifice time and money for its use. Instead of having the weekend to study, do homework, relax and indulge in leisure activities, it is spent in working,” remarked a cell phone market observer.

He said that the one craze that has risen is that of texting.

Some people send hundreds of text messages every day. People send text messages everywhere, even in class during lessons. It has become such a nuisance for teachers that cell phones have been banned in many schools.

Another problem that has risen is the sending of sexually explicit messages which has become common among the young generation.
