Taking Photos On Smartphones Could Be Causing You To Lose Your Memory

These days it’s hard to go anywhere without seeing folks taking out their phones to capture a moment, but it turns out taking all those pictures may not be helping you remember that great experience.  That’s because, according to a new report, folks aren’t actually experiencing the moment. 

A new study suggests that all this picture taking with Smartphones is causing people to lose their memories, simply because they are so distracted with their phones they don’t remember what they’ve experienced. 

The thinking is essentially this:  if you're not in the moment, experiencing the moment, your brain can't make memories of it.  By the way, the authors of the study say it's not just taking pictures, but texting, posting . . . all those multitasking distractions are causing memory loss.
