|Smartphone versus Cellphone Usage|
In today's society, the majority of individuals are connected to the internet in multiple ways on a constant basis. It is very uncommon for people today to not have their Facebook, Twitter or other form of social media attached to their smart phones. While social media is a major function of the smart phone, people are constantly connected to the internet in other ways as well. For example, the iPhone as well as any other smartphone allows you to connect your email so you have access to your messages twenty-four-seven.
Being constantly connected to the internet was one of the most unexpected functions of the cell phone. Due to the numerous social media apps, email accounts and text messaging services, the once primary functions of the cell phone, making and receiving phone calls are somewhat extinct.
Convergence is drastically seen in this phenomenon. Because of the combination of media outlets, companies can provide the consumer with one technological tool that allows them to remain constantly updated and in touch with their online worlds.
