1986 was a time where mobile phones first started to sell in the US and people could start communicating more easily and it was also a time when diverse relationships weren’t as common. Technology was just starting to advance but in todays world where everyone is using their phones to communicate with one another. Culture was also starting to move forward as more and more races began to have relationships. The way that Eleanor and Park fall in love is completely different from any modern love story. A modern love story nowadays has two people using their phones to text people their feelings or social media to help them fall in love. While in Eleanor and Park, neither of them even owned their own phone and the only way to every communicate was in person or using their home phones. Eleanor and Park does not classify as a modern love story. Eleanor and Park don’t use phones to communicate in their relationship. In modern day love stories a cellphone is a huge factor in someone’s relationship. In the book Eleanor says, “There was no use telling him that they didn’t have a phone” (Rowell 82). With Eleanor not having a phone there is no way for her to contact Park unless their are in person. But in today’s society people are using their phones more and more to reach others when they can't be seen in person. A recent study in Womens Health Magazine shows that the majority of people would spend over 10 hours using social media or talking to others. The most time used in total would be text messaging clocking in at over 90 minutes a day. The sheer amount of time we spend on our phones is no surprise but compared to Eleanor and Park who don’t even come close to the amount of time we use on our phones, making their love story not modern. Social media has had an huge effect on how people update each other on what’s happening in their daily lives. People are always updating on Facebook what’s going on in their lives all around the world. For example updating a relationship status or posting about how they feel right now. In Eleanor and Park no one knew that they were both dating until Park told Steve to “‘Leave ... my ... girlfriend... alone.’” (131) in which Steve responds, “‘You’re my friend. I didn’t know she was your girlfriend’” (132). This is showing how uninformed everyone was and how back then you needed to announce it to everyone. The modern equivalent to what Park did would be to go on Facebook or any social media site and update your relationship status about it. A survey from Market Research, shows a study of social media users who use Facebook, that 38% of 18+ people…
to tell a cell phone apart from a Smartphone is to determine whether or not the device has a mobile operating system. A mobile operating system is much like what’s powering your personal computer at home or at work.

lives. But still the following topic is controversial one. Nowadays modern technology has totally changed our approach to study. In many countries students no longer have to copy notes by hand from the blackboard; instead the teacher gives them a photocopy. Rather than messy ink and pen, students present a typed-up copy of their assignments. Their computer even checks their spelling as they go. In fact, some people believe that modern technology does a lot of our thinking for us and, as a result, we…

started to understand what a revolutionary creation the phone was. Popular
from the 1890s to the 1930s, the candlestick phone was separated into two pieces. The
mouthpiece formed the candlestick, and the receiver was placed against the ear during a call. This
style died out in the 30s when phone manufacturers started to incorporate the mouthpiece and the
receiver into a single unit.
The next iteration of the telephone was the infamous rotary phone which spanned from the 1930s
to the 1960s. Notoriously…

Instagram: A World-Wide Love Affair
As I sit restlessly in my lecture trying to pass the time, an all too familiar rumble in the pocket of my jeans awakens my interest and energy. I discreetly pull my bulky smart phone from the depths of my lent-lined pockets to find that the girl I have been crushing on lately has liked my Instagram photo. Making sure to remain undetected by the prying eyes of my professor, I gently return my phone to its resting place while maintaining a star-struck…
