In the early times in Africa, people used to send messengers to deliver messages. This was very time consuming and also had disadvantages because the messengers could even be eaten by animals or attacked by robbers. When telephones were becoming more widespread in the world in the 1930s, they were still not being used a lot in Kenya (1). With the invention of the cell phone, it was easier and more accessible and therefore cell phones became very common in Kenya. People used these phones for instant communication, predominantly through text messages (1). They allow people to communicate, but also to work, browse the internet and play games.However, most young people still do not have access to a cell phone.
I am interested in this topic because I want to determine whether phones are good and whether they can help a country develop. For my inquiry, I would like to investigate the advantages of cell phones, the disadvantages of cell phones and how a society can build their cell phone use in a way that has the greatest positive impact.
