Keywords:College students, Mobile phone used situation, Phubbing
AbstractMobile phones have laid a significant effect on college students with the development of science and technology. Referring to previous survey, the number of phubbing quantity grew dramatically year on year. It has caused various problems such as damaging physical and mental health of college students and ruining their social communication skills and interpersonal relationships.We came to following conclusions through this survey:1. Smart phones have exerted great influence on students’ lives with diverse powerful functions and fast updating speed. They use phones on many occasions and mainly use phone as communicating and entertaining tools. 2. Most of students have heard of the concept ‘Phubbing’, and they think that this phenomenon will become more and more popular. According to the survey, over 70% college students said they mainly use phones for listening music, watching videos and looking through social apps, which probably is one of the reasons leading to the phenomenon of phubbing. And another 40% of students prefer face-to-face communication. Therefore, we think the negative effect of phubbing might be eased with proper guidance.
