An external human organ-Mobile Phone
Have you any time think that a mobile phone will become a human organ?
Probably the answer might be no …!
A friend of mine recently quoted me, he lost his Mobile phone for a while and till he got it back he felt as if he lost a vital body part! If it is missing we feel isolated, If it’s not ringing for a long time, we will check our phone, ” something wrong? ” No doubt, Mobile phone revolution is probably the most important tech development of the past two decades.
The CEO of Escotel Mobile Communications Ltd., Mr.Manoj Kohli’s words, ” A day will come where our people will not be able to live their lives without Mobile phones “. Now the time proved it – we are addicted to Mobile phones and today with the advent of mobile phones and international connectivity, the world is indeed shrinking rather making ” geography a history “!
It’s true that mobile communication provides many benefits, including convenience, flexibility and personal security, but sometimes it can be intrusive to others. One of the biggest social issues with Mobile phones is privacy. The fact is, we have become so accustomed to using our phones for everyday tasks – talking to friends, running our business, keeping up to date with news, events etc. But we don’t realize that Mobile phones are at times a distraction for us and others.
At times, Mobile phones turn people into rude non-connective human beings. Text messaging, E-mail, Internet – Mobile phone capabilities are amazing, however, many people have forgotten their manners when they use Mobile phones. Look around – A Rude Mobile phone user is everywhere – driving in cars, walking on the street, in Cafes and Restaurants and even at the adjacent cubicle at the workplace.
Mobile phone rings in Cinema Theatres, Restaurants and other public places are really annoying the people around. On the other hand, unsolicited calls from Telemarketing Executives have become a nuisance for every single Mobile phone user.
I guess it’s time for us to use Mobile phones with a certain degree of etiquette especially in places where we might appear impolite if we use or even when our Mobile phone rings. The underlying principle of any good manners is the thoughtful consideration of the interests and feelings of others. Given with the fact that, Mobile phone has become the most important business communication tool, we need to understand, if we don’t set proper etiquette, it can lead to misunderstandings, bad impressions, anger and sometimes embarrassment. So use it in a proper way to gain knowledge on current marketing trends.
