They have done some rather interesting studies on the addictive nature of texting/social media/smart phones in general. It's not good at all when you can not turn your phone off during a movie, dinner, whatever. If you literally can not go an hour without it being right by you, it's time to rethink.

I enjoy connecting with people but I turn it off when need be, and leave it home when I can. I know people who go into full blown panic attacks if they forget theirs, and refuse to turn it off, ever. Did you forget that we spent the majority of our lives without one? It's like they have a constant paranoia that something will happen unless it is in their pocket.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
