These 22 Cartoons Illustrate How Smartphones Are The Death Of Conversation

Death Of Conversation: 20+ Images Of How Smartphones Take Over Our Lives

“Hold that thought,” your best friend states as he pushes his nose closer to the IPhone in his hand. Even ten years ago such behavior would have been considered rude, but today it’s an everyday occurrence.

But while technology may technically be ‘connecting’ people all over the globe, to what extent is it also separating individuals from having true, present communication with each other?

This conundrum is a focus many cartoon artists have sought to bring attention to through illustration.

Whether at a coffee shop where patrons are more interested in their laptops than conversation, or at a family get-together where everyone has to check their cell-phones every 15 minutes, there is no doubt it is becoming an exception – not the norm – to be able to hold conversation for an extended period of time.

Of course technology has improved all of our lives for the better, but the questions that now beg to be asked are “how much is too much?”, and “what are we going to do about it?”
