People who use smartphones in excess may experience personal, social and workplace problems, warns new research. In the study, participants who identified themselves as "addicts" and "fanatics" exhibited signs that could indicate depression, social isolation, social anxiety, shyness, impulsivity and low self-esteem. Our smartphones have turned into a tool that provides short, quick, immediate satisfaction, which is very triggering," said Isaac Vaghefi.
