Accordingly, the following are some of the dumbest things people do with their smart phones:

People have been known to obsessively take images of food and share them on social media thinking they’ll get some likes. However, most people may think that sharing images of food is quite ridiculous. What’s more, other people sitting at the restaurant are sure to have a good laugh watching you take pictures of your food.

Settling arguments through text messages:

No one knows when it started, at some point in time; humans began to communicate through text messages. People began settling arguments through text messages instead of meeting face-to-face. Sure sending text messages is faster, we can get to the point quicker. However, through text messages we lose two important aspects of communication, one being tone and the other being context. If you are determined to solve things over social media, you could call them through Skype or what’s app.

Use a lighter app on your smart phone to a concert:

Soon after, the black bear mauled the teenager to death.

Remember the 80’s when you could walk down the streets playing your boom box dancing to the beat. Well, those are days are long gone and if you are still walking the streets with your smart phones on speaker playing 80’s music, you are just plain annoying. All you are doing is annoying people with you smart phone and people no longer appreciate music blasting from speaker phones.
