Abstract

Nomophobia. Never heard of it? Apparently it is a 'thing'. Honestly. A 'nomophobe' - according to researchers at Iowa State University (who have developed the world's first diagnostic questionnaire) - suffers from nomophobia, a 'fear of being without your mobile phone'.3 Of course you've heard of workplace bullying. Recent research demonstrates it is on the rise. Did you know, however, that 'unfriending employees on Facebook' could constitute 'workplace bullying'? This was a recent finding of the workplace tribunal.4 These comprise just two aspects of life in the digital age that were unimaginable a decade ago when Facebook was emerging from college dormitories in northeastern USA. The changing face of friendship, fellowship and formation is the focus of this essay.
