That sentiment is fine for hanging out with friends, but in my line of work a cell phone is required. The company was then faced with a choice, take on a large cost of buying everyone phones, or split the cost with the employees. Since we all had out own phones anyways, the decision was unanimous: 1 phone, less to carry, cheaper for everyone, more money in my pocket and my companies pocket.

Long story short, my "personal" cell phone is required on my work trips.

My personal examples

  • Adult parties where we have kids and want adults to be able to talk and let the kids go gather (leave us alone for just a little)
  • Adult parties where we watch a movie (maybe a good movie, maybe an intentionally bad movie), but the gathering is longer than the movie, so we talk about it and other things before and after
  • Family gathering where we actually watch a movie or slide show, you are right that it isn't the most social. But we do it, and we like it. Balance and moderation and all that
  • things like cromecast enable, pick-your-favorite youtube video competitions (anyone can put a video on the queue ) ; basically like hanging out on the internet...but in person
