The literature on social connectedness through mobile phone engagement reveals positive tacit opportunities. Mobile phone engagement hosts micro and macro opportunities to start and maintain a sense of social connectedness. Increasing a sense of social connectedness encourages healthier emotional well-being among people, reducing potential feelings of isolation and chances of faster recovery from illness. Mobile social media access, participation and messaging, be it face-to-face, peer-to-peer, group or virtual, through intentional and unintentional social connectedness, may aid the improvement and performance among workers, students and campaigns. Mobile engagement also offers possible improvement in performance and enhanced perceptions of emotional well-being. Engagement through social media networks, mostly accessed via mobile, including mobile gaming, or health monitoring, commenting or posting photos or short texts, increases the production and value of successful maintenance of reciprocal interpersonal relationships.
