A major proponent for the spoken word and voice of WLIW21, Susan Murphy joins the the student-radio segment “In Focus” to tell her secret about verbal communication. Who would have ‘thunk’ it is difficult to listen… huh?
Many students have trouble doing what Murphy does so well: communicating. The Stony Brook University community is plugged in, fixated to their phones. As the use of smartphones continues to climb, the Nielsen Company states in a 2013 study that more than 71 percent of the country uses smartphones on a daily basis to communicate everyday messages. The highest number of users come from our generation — over 80 percent of millennials own smartphones.
Though it has made our lives unquestionably more efficient, when it comes down to it, many students struggle to have face-to-face conversations with their parents, professors and peers.
