Phubbing – a bad habit !!!

Phubbing, short form of Phone Snubbing – The act of ignoring someone by looking at your phone instead of paying attention.

Imagine yourself having conversation with a friend and he starts checking his phone during the middle of the conversation. Not only he checks the phone but also starts replying to texts and emails.Phubbing

Since the invention of smartphones, people have shown increasingly poor social behavioural skills. People texting, tweeting, emailing and facebooking, all from their phones while in the presence of others.

Bad effects of Phubbing :-

  • Due to Phubbing face to face relationship is getting over.
  • Personal Communication is getting eradicated and phone is used as the medium to say something.
  • Partners are seen sitting in silence doing something on their phones rather than talking with each other.

Symptoms of one being a Phubber :-

  • Making frequent status updates on facebook
  • Always texting continuously via SMS or whatsapp
  • Always laughing looking at the phone screen
  • Constantly tweeting
  • Updating location on Foursquare
  • And not the least sexting too.

Don’t you think day by day number of Phubbers are increasing in our society. One can find a Phubber in trains, restaurants, pubs, cinema halls, parks, airports, in the streets, social functions, meetings, lectures, parties and the list is endless.

You will never find them within the crowd. They always prefer to be sitting alone. A Phubber is never attentive to what other is saying or rather is only paying attention in his/her phone. Phubber is so much use to his /her phone that it has become a necessity in life. Phubber will never know or realise when they can and cannot use their phone.

Just a cautious note to Phubbers to never use your phone :-

  • During a job interview
  • On a date
  • At a wedding
  • While having conversation with anyone

Phubbing is spreading like a contagious disease across the world. Global campaigns have started to stop this phone snubbing and its fast gathering support across the globe.

Phubbing_1I too am supporting this cause and saying no to Phubbing. Hope you all too support it.

Bhaiya ji Smile :-)

You must have heard these words in recent block buster movie of our Salman bhai “Dabangg”. The villain has hired a special photographer to click pictures of his own in various positions. In full movie the only dialogue the photographer says is “Bhaiya ji Smile” and clicks pictures using his camera.


Now with the help of Smart phones which has the facility to click HD pictures, I have seen more and more people are clicking their own photos, to update their DP for Facebook or Twitter or Whatsapp or BB chat or Orkut or rather any social website or any chat on the mobile.

I always wonder what do we call such people, Photogenic or self obsessed? Or is it that they want to capture each and every moment of their life and post it on some place so that all known people are updated with the latest whereabouts. Or is it that these people likes to see their own beauty and admire it day and night J. Technology has really benefited such people. Smart phones with very high capacity storage and good mega pixel camera has made life simpler for them, rather hiring a personal photographer as in the case of Chedi Singh in Dabangg. To add to these the latest phones has dual camera (front and back) which works together at the same time and not to forget the editing software which are easily and freely available in the market which helps to look more photogenic.

How can we forget the other side of the person who does not like to click any photos of their own or clicked by anyone. Do they have photophobia or are they un-photogenic? Many have their own reasons of not clicking any pictures or allowing anyone to click their pictures. But these people can still smile like others 🙂
