How not to use your smartphone

We at Hoodere believe that social technology has an important role to play in bringing us closer together in real life.

Hoodere helps you identify the friends that will be at the same place as you in the future so you do not miss an opportunity to meet up just because you did not know it. Hoodere also helps in making the plan in a painless manner. Foursquare helps in deciding the right location. Instagram helps us capture the moment and embellishes the visual memory. The list goes on.

However, its important to realize that these tools exist to enhance the social experience, not hijack it as it so often does.

We tried to humorously capture this sentiment in our take on a modified Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Here’s an excellent short video that shows what life becomes when you allow technology to become the end rather than the means.
