The anonymity of talking in public

There was a time when we wanted to talk about a private issue in public we would go to a place where we could talk about it outside of earshot of other people.

This was before the advent of the mobile phone.

Quite often it is absolutely normal for people to talk about anything within earshot of others.

While traveling on long distance bus journeys I have had the chance of listening to a variety of sales persons giving detailed feedback of their activities without any concern about who is listening.

It is the anonymity of talking in public!

A new phenomenon brought about by the easy availability of mobile phones.
