he pie charts illustrate the main reasons for using the phones in teenagers in one African country throughout a period of four years from 2016 to 2019, according to the results of case studies.
    Overall, what stands out from the charts is that the purpose of using social networks accounted for the highest percentage. However, the lowest figure went for making phone calls.
     The reason for social networks took up half in 2016, and it remained stable for the next 2 years. This percentage then slightly rose to 56% in 2019. Besides, 15% of the students used the phone for digital cameras in 2016 and 2017. That purpose witnessed an insignificant increase by 3% and 5% in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
      There was one-fourth of students' sending emails in the first year of the period shown, and this proportion steadily decreased to 19% in 2019 afterward. Making phone calls was a considerably erratic figure when it stood at 10% in 2016, and later climbed to 13% in 2017. Finally, it experienced a drop in its number by 2% and 6% in 2018 and 2019, severally.
