Can a person remain socially relevant and enlightened without the use of a smartphone?
No. Not a single person on Earth was socially relevant nor enlightened before the invention of smart phones. DUH!
Ithabise, are you a promoter of smartphones? LOL. I agree with JimTxMiller. There's no necessity to own a smartphone to be socially relevant. Conversely, one can have a smartphone and still be socially irrelevant.
If you need to connect to people on the internet, smartphone is not the only means. Even an old desktop computer can do the trick. So my answer is an unambiguous "Yes, a person can still remain socially relevant and enlightened without the use of a smartphone". (By the way, I don't own a smartphone and I am replying to your question with an old desktop computer.)
I like your thinking. I too believe that you can remain relevant and enlightened socially without one. I asked the question because I don't own a smartphone myself, but people look at me like I'm an alien!
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.... ooophhhs, I mean rely on your own wisdom, instead of the blind leading the blind. You use a smartphone because you need its functions, not because others look at you like you're an alien.
Better yet, can someone be social at all with the use of a smart phone?
If anything, smartphones have made people more anti-social. Everyone is immersed in their own little digital world without interacting with their relatives, friends, and whatnot. Do you know how many times I've seen bunches of friends eating at fast foods and restaurants, all of them silently tapping at their phones, without crossing a word?
