An object in a sentence is:

  • "a person or thing that is affected by the action of a verb or involved in the result of an action, or a noun, pronoun or noun phrase that represents that person or thing"
  • "a word that follows a preposition"

(from Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)

For example, in the sentence 'I like talking to my friends on the phone', both 'friends' and 'phone' are objects.
