Advice for future researchers:
It was hard to find evidence for things that aren't based on data, like the cultural significance of cell phones. During the process of finding evidence I found many studies that presented data but didn't explain the cultural significance of cell phones. The cultural aspect of cell phones was an important part of this paper so I had to look for other sources that had what I was looking for, but they usually didn't contain any supporting evidence which made them unusable.
The overall research experience was enjoyable. What I learned about this topic is something that could be implemented in my every day life, which made the research process more fun. Collecting evidence was easy because this topic is being researched more frequently. As my researched continued and deepened I found out that phone use affects more fundamental things like sleep in a person. One of the most interesting things to research were the cultural effects phone use had, despite it being hard to find evidence to back up the source's claims.
