Social Norms are unwritten rules in That societies live by,such as
excusing yourselfto have a private conversation
or speaking at a low tone as not to bother others.
I have been privy to all kinds of infromation from total strangers, talking
very loudly and discussing private matters. 20 years ago cellphones
were futuristic, when you were in someones company if a private call
came in you would more than likely excuse yourself, however in todays
world it seems to be the "norm" everyone on phones and speaking about
anything. When I was coming up it was rude to disturb others with this type
of behavior, and family and private business was just that. With that being
said will there be a place for these "private conversations" and will today's
society take anvantage of it?
Change is constant, and in a constantly changing world we must change
with the technology. They have newer and better phones coming out all the
time so I guess we can look forward to "norms" changing, technology improving,
and more information being shared wether you want it or not.
