The article, Have smartphones hijacked our spirituality?, by Tiffany Gee Lewis states,

“There have been a rash of recent articles revealing what smartphones are doing to our cognitive ability.

Studies by psychologists have found that using a smartphone, “or even hearing one ring or vibrate, produces a welter of distractions that makes it harder to concentrate on a difficult problem or job,” writes Nicholas Carr in a recent Wall Street Journal article, “How Smartphones Hijack our Minds.”

This same research found that “the more heavily students relied on their phones in their everyday lives, the greater the cognitive penalty they suffered,” Carr writes. The mere presence of a phone while taking a test significantly impacted a person’s score.

Meanwhile, tech insiders, those who created the very pings and notifications we find so appealing, are now coming out with warnings of their addictive nature. This is according to an Oct. 6 article in The Guardian, “Our Minds Can be Hijacked” by Paul Lewis.

“It is very common for humans to develop things with the best of intentions and for them to have unintended, negative consequences,” says Justin Rosenstein in the article.

Rosenstein, who developed both the “like” feature for Facebook posts and Gchat for Google, is one of a growing body of tech developers who are worried that the features they designed are reshaping our thoughts, choices and even our very democracy, according to The Guardian article.”
