Let's face it; for many people there's the iPhone and then there's the green bubble.  They don't care what your deal is, they just know that you are not part of the same club.

I'm an Android user.  I switch platforms every 2 years or so.  When I used an iPhone I felt the warm inclusion of being a blue bubble.  Apple made it super easy to become a blue bubble.  But when I switched phones it was a nightmare becoming a green bubble.  There is a stigma with being a green bubble.  Honestly, I've judged people for it.  So, what does being a green bubble say about me?  What are peoples impression of me as a green bubble?  I met my wife when I was a blue bubble... but imagine if I was a green bubble at the time?

Apple's lovin' it

Apple not only appreciates this division but (not surprisingly) they created it.  This is the old iPhone website.

Social Media is a abuzz with disdain! #android #greenbubble

Judging people's bubbles

Like I said; I used to judge people based on the color of their bubble.  I was online dating at the time and at that point I was an iPhone user.  When I saw someone was a green bubble I thought either;

1. They are clueless about culture

They don't understand what a status symbol the iPhone has become.

2. They can't afford an iPhone

They want one but just can't afford it

They want one but just can't afford it

3. They are actively rejecting culture and don't give a fuck.

For most people the conclusion is #1. I'm giving people some credit by adding #3 in there.  But it really would draw a generally negative reaction from me when the bubble was green.  For the most part I felt like there must be some part of them that I won't be able to relate to.  Like those people who don't like watching TV shows. (it is a bridgeless divide between us!)

How do you feel about the green bubbles popping up on your phone? Or in a group chat when one jerk destroys the whole thing by having an Android?
