I noticed that, in Europe, some people wear two smartphones. I see them regularly in public transport. I also know some relatives who have 2 phones, although they somewhat try to hide it.
I am not entirely sure why they have two phones because they don’t really want to talk about it, but it seems that they want to keep 2 separate facebook accounts, one for their family and one for their friends. One explained me that he wanted to keep a dating application separate from his normal facebook account. He is divorced, BTW, so it is not as if he were cheating on his wife.
They are private phones. A corporate, work phone would come extra (I have seen people with 2 smartphones and a blackberry…).
I somewhat understand the attraction of extra privacy. I would not want my mother to see facebook “friends” that would I would met from a dating site, for example. Fortunately, my mother does not use facebook and I am past the age for dating sites. I am actually not really sure how dating sites work nowadays, but I believe that they all want to link to facebook.
My question: is having two phones and two facebook accounts is also common in the USA? Do you know people that keep 2 phones in this way?
