ProWritersHub (W5):: Technology in our lives - how mobile phones changed how we communicate
It's my pleasure to join in this ongoing project known as ProWritersHub, I see it as an opportunity to share my little knowledge about all the chosen topics for the project.
Let's go to this topic proper.
In what ways did people communicate before the invention of telephone?
In the 1950's there were no cellphones, no email address, no social media platforms for communications, so it wasn't too easy to communicate with families that were living far from home but there were still some form of communication tho it was very slow.
There were things like
Years before cellphones, information were sent with letter writing through the postal services and it will take weeks sometimes months before the information will get to our loved ones.
Before the era of cellphones information were sent through mails, the sender will pay a certain amount of money to the mail holder and pass the message and the owner of the mail will send it out and it will take days to get to the receiver.
In some country they had some people called messengers, they travel with thier horses miles away from home just to help people send messages to thier loved ones.
And so many other ways.
How has mobile phones enhanced communication?
Firstly without the help of mobile phones I won't be a steemian and no one will have a Facebook page or watspp page, cell phone made all this possible.
In just some seconds we can communicate with anyone that is located in any part of the country.
Technology has even made it easy to the extent that you don't just hear voices you can see the person through a video conference call.
What type of mobile phone do you use (include picture of your phone)?
I use Tecno spark 7p, and the phone is just 16month old.
What are its features and its estimated value in Steem?
Tecno spark 7p is a 4gb Ram 64gb ROM network smart phone.
Tecno spark7p is sold for Eighty one thousand Naira which is equivalent to 733 steems base on coingeko price of steem at the moment.
If you have the chance to upgrade, what type of mobile phone will you choose?
Honestly am a phone frick, right now if I have my way financially I will like to upgrade to Samsung Galaxy A53 with is sold for two hundred and forty-two thousand Naira which is equivalent to 2286steem.
I like Samsung Galaxy A53 with passion because of the space, and the camera quality.
What negative things do people do with mobile phones?
People do so many negative things with phones.
Most of the extortioners make away with peoples wealth through cell phones.
Some informations that should be kept secret fly everywhere with the help of cellphones.
For instance if two people are fighting to death instead of looking for a way to bring peace people will be busy doing video and make post on Facebook and other social media platforms.
Immoral life is rampant today because of some immoral videos that people watch on thier phones when they are alone and they also send it to thier friends.
Crime and violence increase today because of what people see as movie in thier cell phones.
Conclusively we say a very big thank you to science and technology because it has brought us so far and for good. We also say a big thank you to W. Rae Young American inventor, Eric Tigerstedt, Martin Cooper the American engineer who collectively invented cell phones,
Life is easier and things are done faster because of the invention of cell phones.
