The Mission!

Who are we? We are a phubbers worst nightmare.

Here at stop phubbing we aim to create a world wide task force against phubbing; a place where people can go to vent their concerns, dob in a phubber, and learn tricks and techniques to stop even the most die hard phubber dead in their tracks.

We believe that this can be halted through naming and shaming repeat offenders and creating awareness of the worrying increase of phubbing in society.

We know we have the power to obliterate this antisocial trend so tell your friends - Stop phubbing!

Stop Phubbing

Since the invention of smartphones, people have shown increasingly poor social behavioural skills. People texting, tweeting, emailing and Facebooking, all from their phones while in the presence of others.

This has been declared the act of ''phubbing'' on many social media groups - a combination of the words phone and snubbing, and I personally feel this must stop.

I continually see this happening - during meetings, lectures, dinners, parties and even at clubs. Has being social really come down to how many friends you have on your Facebook page?
