    As a mom of two beautiful daughters, I can totally relate to this! I wish that when they are with me that the phone would stay in their purses! I have started doing this back at them to see if I can make them understand. I think it might backfire and I will become a Phubber, too!

  2. Great post! I had never heard the word phubbing but I am sorry to admit I have been guilty of it. I especially liked your advice: "Don't jump like a hungry wolf when you receive a text/mail notification on your phone." This is the one that is hard for me!

    Great post, Swathi. Love your tips. I'd never heard of that term Phubbing but so many people are guilty of it these days. I admit I do my fair share of Phubbing on Facebook and don't always listen attentively if my family is talking to me. Thanks for the reminder to interact with the real world as it's more important than the electronic one but often I forget that.

    Oh, and on that topic, Happy Embrace Your Inner Geek Day!

    Great tips! I find it helps to place my phone on the table face-down so I'm not tempted to look at every single alert that pops up.

    Terrific post, Swathi! I agree with you. I learned a new word today 'phubbing" and it annoys me no end when people would rather stay attached to technology than enjoy face-to-face time with people. So glad there's no danger of me every phubbing!

    This is a great post. There is nothing that irritates me more than someone with their head so into their cell phone they can't even stop to watch a movie, enjoy family, or eat. Some can't even go to the bathroom without their phone. It is ridiculous.

    Nice. I agree with you. This texting and SMS is more popular only in India. I rarely see that much in other countries. The worst is "missed call". Hey, if you don't have money to call someone, don't call, period.

    well I think the new gadgets are becoming a nuisance.. I beleive a phone is to make and receive a fone call so one shud use it for just that ..
    Gone are the days when come sunday everyone ran to the ground to make sure they get the best part of the ground to play.. Now hardly anyone in the big grounds as kids are busy on their phone games or ps3's

    and hey reading the above comment congrats on being chosen 🙂
