According to Nielsen, US and US teens sent 2,272 messages a month. This is equivalent to almost 80 messages a day. In fact, text messages are so popular that in North America (as of 2006), 40% of mobile users use active SMS. In Europe, the average is 85%. Throughout the world, the use of text messaging has developed very fast. In 2000, 17 billion text messages were sent. By 2004, this figure reached almost 500 billion, it's almost 85 text messages per person in the world.
The popularity of text messages has put people in positive and negative situations. For example, former Detroit Mayer Kwame Kilpatrick had his entire life turned upside down through a text message sex scandal. He went from being the youngest to the only mayor to be charged with innocence in Detroit. On the positive side, text messages are used as the source of information and alerts. Many credit card companies offer SMS alerts for the upcoming maturity date. With the increased popularity of cell phones with internet capabilities, people may be paying their bills on getting a warning. In addition, you can send text messages to Google to find directions, weather, flight, sports scores, etc. Services like ChaCha allow us to answer all of our questions. All you do is send a question to ChaCha and a live person will send you a message again within a few minutes with the answer to your question. However, this convenient service and general message have been successful.
Many experts agree that text messages have served more badly than good, especially for the teenager. There are obvious security issues, especially with recent suggestions to ban text messages while driving. This obviously creates disturbance for drivers, putting other drivers and road users at risk. Even in the course of time, people have their greatest attention to entering their message, instead of what's ahead of them. Especially in busy places, I've noticed that people have not yeticed. The other day I walked to Times Square and was very annoyed by people who suddenly stopped in the middle of the pavement to finish the message. That, and a combination of tourists, makes Times Square a trap.
Teenagers are easily mislead at school. Instead of paying attention to courses, students are texting away. I've seen this happening a lot in college. Especially in upper secondary schools, this leads to falling points, and poor reporting cards. Some guys are up late with their friends, whom experts believe could have a significant effect on sleep. I have seen a lot of college struggles because they use the phone so much. I think this is because when you send text messages you are likely to be in the middle of thinking. The response thus means the ability to act immediately and distract you from other things (learning). I saw this happening in my library at any time. Especially in the finals, it would take forever to find a table. It's very annoying when people take up space but just sit there on the phone. In group projects, there is always one kid who keeps pulling out his phone to send a message. This creates a major disruption from work and has a significant impact. I have also read articles that indicate that students use text messages to cheat. Even though teachers and professors do not say that they are in a test, they never enforce the rules.
I think that increased use of the phone, especially for text messages, could adversely affect your hands. The idea of texting is similar to that which has proved to be a problem for many. Although text messages are not as comprehensive as using a keyboard computer, increased usage may still be enough to cause a support system. However, data is very limited on this subject.
What about English? One would think of using abbreviations, short messages and imperfect sentences could lead to bad language skills. Although text messages are short, they are sent so often that it may affect linguistics. Many experts believe this way; However, others offer interesting protests. Text messages may not be so bad. Some experts added that the use of abbreviations is a new communication page that shows dexterity and creativity. This communication technology expands our language requirements and shows ingenuity. There are cases where people engage in "text messages" in academic documents, but do not harm anyone else.
I have noticed some ways in which text messages enjoy individuals. Another way is that this communication technology connects people. Many people are in constant contact with each other. They develop a great interest in knowing what's happening in people's lives and sharing information they would not otherwise. Some conversations, or at least topics, would never be in direct communication. Sometimes it's because we're too scared or forget later. There are other situations where text messages may be more appropriate than conversations on the phone (in a quiet public). Thus, it improves comfort and does not interfere with others.
I have been able to talk in a variety of ways as a text message damaging human beings. I am fully aware that these interpretations are only valid with credible data and statistical analysis. However, the increase in text messaging is a recent phenomenon and not enough data to build final conclusions. Many experts have developed a number of hypotheses that they hope to test in the near future. I have come across some research but found a lot of bugs that lead to inaccurate rights. Some studies show only a few students from one particular high school, leading to invalid results. I chose not to share these data or resolutions for this reason. For future research, it would be interesting to correct data by type of mobile phone (compare normal phone to smartphone and see if there are significant differences – whether positive or negative).
