Nocializing: Are You Guilty?
Has anyone said to you, “Can you please put your phone down, I want to talk to you?” The answer is yes – right?
Over the last 2 years, social media has taken over my life, in many ways. For instance, I always check my phone first thing in the morning and last thing at night, are you the same?
‘Nocializing’ is defined as “The act of being out in a social public setting (i.e. Restaurant, Cocktail Bar, Coffee shop) and only spending time on your mobile device; not the people with or around you.” – Urban Dictionary.
Now I know (the name of) my guilty pleasure.
Just recently, my mother became extremely irate – due to the fact that I was uploading too many pictures onto Instagram, in her company.
I stopped nocializing, then.
Constantly I am reading content, tweeting, yelping, vining and blogging, without a blink of an eyelid.
Are you nocializing too?
