socellize v;(so-cell-ize)social interaction via cell phone or having a conversing texting online; a habit known to corrupt a language, and destroy social skills, e.g making it hard for people to hold actual conversations face to face, along with the loss of affection in a relationship, losing face to face intimacy

Caution: "socellizing allows people to hide behind screens and to not truly express themselves for who they are, and avoiding uncomfortable and undesired situations by addressing them through text messages is detrimental"

As quoted by Bernard Guerney, founder of the National Institute of Relationship Enhancement, “you grow some when you face things, and I think you lose something when you have to resort to tricky things and not confront people about things that are intimately important” (Psych Central).

In addition, social skills and face to face interactions are damaged through impersonal communication because the individual is unable to express body language, tone, voice, touch and facial expressions through text message

 

 

Example use


 

2 friends at a party

Look at those people, they're all "socellizing", not one of them has looked up to see anything or anyone else for that manor, lets face it, we live in a 'socell' society today, people rarely talk to each other face to face anymore

Ya bro and hate to tell you, this is also a socell designated party, so whatever you do, don't fraternize, only socellize

Exuse me YOU TWO, NO FRATERNIZING, This is strictly a socell party

But we're friends!!?? cant we...

Sorry, rules are rules...
