    Why people use smartphones so often?

    Hello everyone, this post are going to be my first here. My name is Alexey, I'm from Russia. Sorry, my writing could be really bad, but I'm going to work hard on it.

    Why people use smartphones so often?
    That is so typical to see a few people who seats at one table, and everyone is using his smartphone. Especially, it is so common between teenagers. You can enter into any cafe and notice many people who absorbed in their mobile phones. They don't communicate, they just do what they do when they are alone at home. I think that's kind of addiction. Technology and internet influence us really badly.

    Well, that is enough for my first try. I'm sure here a lot of mistakes in my writing, and I'm ready to listen to your corrections.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above. Remember this piece of advice - don't use "so" when you mean "very".

    Isn't this a comma splice?

    I've just seen your post - ten seconds ago, I spotted my error and changed the comma to a semi-colon. Thanks, though!
