This article deals with the social consequences of the mobile phone as new technology. It provides a fascinating way for observing how it influences the relationships of adolescents with their parents and peers. It is important to mention that this research was conducted in norway only, however it is not too difficult to notice that the same consequences exist even here, within our families and among other teenagers who live here. I would suggest to conduct a research about the consequenses of this technology on adults at the age of 20-25, who still live with their parents, and to see whether different results come out... unlike the former traditional home telephone, mobile phone enables teenagers to control their social interaction without any interference of their parents- in this way they gain something they strive for - less parental supervising, privacy and freedom to run their peer group interactions the way they want, in order to form their own independent identity.
