If your phone is sitting silently on the table next to you at the cafe, are you paying less attention to the person you are with?
A new study suggests that even when our phones aren’t actively alerting us to something, we are less connected in our face-to-face interactions with them laying there.
Whether it’s the always-on pressure and expectations we tie ourselves to through our phones or the unlimited potential for distractions within them, the mere presence of a mobile device – not use – could be changing the way you interact.
