What is the impact of cell phones on our society?

What is the impact of cell phones on our society? Check out this latest post from .gov:

“What impact have cell phones had on us socially? Find out by watching this live webcast, on June 4th, at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm EST. https://qrius.si.edu/webcast-unseen-connections-natural-his…

Students will meet Joshua Bell, a cultural anthropologist at the National Museum of Natural History, and explore with him the natural history of cellphones. He will take your class on a journey along a supply chain, from the mines that produce cell phone minerals to the millions of discarded cellphones. Joshua will help students reflect on the emerging social implications of a cell phone being one of our most utilized possessions.”
