Mobile phone addiction is taking the whole world to a very wrong path. Everyone today has got access to the mobile phones. This is OK as far as the phone is used for important reasons, but, these days they are being used for sundry useless reasons too. You will find little children playing angry birds on smartphones and youth engaged on Whatsapp, Hike, etc.

Mobile phones have become the topmost priorities of people. They can live and stay without anybody but their phones. Earlier there used to be love among family members.
